Castiglion del Bosco's Rosso di Montalcino is sourced from Gauggiole vineyard, on the northern side of the estate. A ruby red hue and delicate bouquet announce a remarkably luscious wine, well balanced and firmly structured, with a long-lingering finish. Food Pairings: Tuscan "panzanella", pecorino cheese and artichokes. Tuscan food traditions meet the Montalcino winemaking tradition in its most youthful expression. The freshness of the wine and its fruity, floral nose balance with the taste spectrum of the panzanella. The savouriness of pecorino cheese is delightfully in sync with the light body of the wine and its easygoing mouthfeel finds fulfilment in the artichoke's tannic texture.

Wine EnthusiastFrom an excellent vintage, this bright Rosso offers creamy aromas of espresso mousse and milk chocolate, with steady pulses of cherry and blackberry at the back. The wine's fresh acidity pairs well with cheesy pasta or pizza.
