Rosso di Montalcino 'La Mannella' Cortonesi, Tuscany, Italy 2016

19.95

We love it when a great vintage like 2016 raises the overall quality of a region’s wines so much that nominally lower-ranking wines like this, a humble Rosso di Montalcino, take on many of the characteristics of their more famous sibling and while it may not be as deep and powerful as the very best Brunellos, this sure has a lot of Tuscan warmth woven into its silky frame.

The colour is immediately attractive, a pale Morello cherry that shows good saturation right up to the edge, even if you tilt the glass. The aromas are a Tuscan treat, displaying strawberry (more than Sangiovese’s more typical cherry), with woody tea, tomato leaf and warm brick. It’s subtle and succulent with fleshy red fruits
