Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2014
Rosso di Montalcino is typically made from the younger vines of the Sangiovese Grosso, which also make each estate's Brunello wines. Therefore, Rosso di Montalcino has earned the nickname of 'baby Brunello.' Also, Rosso di Montalcinos spend less time in wood compared to Brunello di Montalcino, and are perfect for more simple meals of classic Tuscan fare.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is much more than your standard Rosso. Ironically, this wine has benefit from the difficult vintage because fruit that was earmarked for Brunello was put here instead. The wine opens to a dark and richly saturated color and good aromatic intensity. The bouquet shows elements of black cherry, spice and tobacco. The wine is smooth and silky in texture. If you are looking for value from Montalcino, this wine delivers it in spades.
Wine SpectatorThe cherry fruit in this fresh red is ripe, with accents of graphite and spice. Stays firm, elegant and moderately long. Drink now through 2019. 2,500 cases made.
