Podere Salicutti Rosso di Montalcino 2004


SKU 24077


Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso, estate grown in the Teatro and Sorgente vineyards, at an average altitude of 1,400-1,500 feet above sea level. The grapes are harvested at the end of September and the wine is aged in large, 500 liter French oak tonneaux for 12 months. This Rosso is deep ruby red in color and offers complex aromas of ripe berries and spice. Full-bodied, lush, and beautifully structured, it more resembles a baby Brunello rather than a traditional Rosso di Montalcino.

Wine AdvocateI highly encourage readers who want to explore the wines of this producer without breaking the bank to check out the superb 2004 Rosso di Montalcino. It is a big, expansive Rosso that provides much pleasure in its cherry and tobacco nuances, offering plenty of style and a level of finesse that gives many Brunellos a run for their money. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2010.

Wine SpectatorClean and medium-bodied, with a good bead of ripe cherry, berry and chocolaty mineral running through from the nose to the finish. Well-balanced, with integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Delicious. Drink now.
