Tasting Notes

Alessia Salvioni and her family did not make Brunello in 2014. Therefore, the only wine to taste during my winery visit this year was the 2017 Rosso di Montalcino. This is a charming and informal wine that reveals good volume and richness. The wine is redolent of wild cherry, blackberry and light touches of subtle spice. Nothing is out of place. The quality of the fruit depends on the older vines of the estate plus the thicker soils of the vineyards that are able to retain moisture even in warm vintages such as this. Careful fruit selection was implemented to achieve this quality. 2019-2025
