Rosso di Montalcino is the “young brother” of Brunello: same grape used but it’s more fresh and easier to drink than Brunello. The Rosso di Montalcino 2018 by Casanova di Neri is a red wine produced in Tuscany, in the region of Montalcino, an hystoric area for the prodution of one of the most important italian red wine: Brunello di Montalcino. Rosso of Montalcino goes beyond the Brunello: as the Brunello, the Rosso is produced exclusively from Sangiovese Grosso coming from younger vineyards, also according to prodution disciplinary the Rosso must age for at least one year of which at least 6 months in wood barrels, against 2 years in wood barrels plus 4 months of aging in bottle, 6 for the Riserva version, of Brunello.
