I am back after a while… It has been quite a few busy months, I have to say.
But here I am, back to my blog! 🙂
I really want to write about this wine, which I really enjoyed the first time as well as the second time and now the third time I have it. Yes, do you remember my visit in Tuscany last year?
Rosso di Montalcino is a red wine meant to be consumed quite young – I’d say not more than 5-8 years from vintage year.
I had it with a Neapolitan dish called “Riso al forno”, rice cooked in the oven with scamorza sorrentina (a smoked cheese from Sorrento), parmigiano and ham. And I loved it! But you could pair with any food which is not too complex I’d say – not fish, please!!!!
Below a description of the wine:
Color: Ruby red (and transparent)
Consistence: Moderately consistent
Intensity: Mod. intense
Complexity: Mod. complex
Quality: Very good
Description: Red cherries, plum, rose, black pepper, menthol and balsamic scents (at the palate)
Alcohols: Moderately warm
Acids: Moderately fresh
Tannins: Medium tannins
Structure or body: Medium body
PAI-Lenght: Moderately long
Overall: Very good
This is the perfect wine for a lunch or dinner at home. It is a wine quite simple to understand and to appreciate.
The quality is very good and Le Potazzine is an amazing wine producer that I discovered in my visit in colline Senesi last summer.
If you did not try it yet, you should!
