FATTORIA DEI BARBI ROSSO DI MONTALCINO 2017

The Rosso di Montalcino is sourced from the estate's younger vines that are part of the estate's 41 hectares (100 acres) located in the southeast area of Montalcino.

Following the harvest, the fruit undergoes a pre-fermentation cold maceration ("cold-soak"), which consists of cooling the grapes at a temperature of 16C in an anaerobic environment (under a CO2 blanket) to protect the must from oxidation. This non-alcoholic, aqueous extraction results in an increased color intensity and stability, softer astringency and tannins and more body and aromatics. After 48 hours, the temperature increases and alcoholic fermentation begins, lasting 12 -13 days and reaching temperatures of 27- 28C. After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in small-medium size oak barrels (225L - 15HL) for six months.

Winemaker Notes:

Vivid ruby-red color with aromas of red berries, red currants, cherries and notes of eucalyptus. The palate is fresh with soft tannins, medium body, bright acidity and a long finish with slight menthol notes.

It is the perfect complement for roasted and grilled meat (both beef and white meat), cheeses and casserole dishes.

Critical Acclaim:

91 points - Decanter
"Delicate nose of dried flowers with leafy, peppery notes. Ripe, chalky tannins with amazing length, full of vibrancy and persistence."
