Tenute Silvio Nardi Rosso di Montalcino 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
|Brand||Tenute Silvio Nardi|
The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is an attractive, nuanced wine to drink now and over the next few years. Dark cherry, tobacco, game and incense bring out the darker, wilder side of Sangiovese in this expressive, layered Rosso. This is such a gorgeous and expressive wine.
I tasted this wine not too long before bottling. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a beautifully linear and bright wine with a strong mineral backbone. Flint and ash are followed by balsam herb and rosemary sprig. There is plenty of dark cherry fruit as well, to round it off and soften it up.
Rich and velvety, boasting cherry, almond, tobacco, iron and earth flavors, this is backed by dense tannins, finishing juicy and long. Drink now through 2021.
