Rosso di Montalcino


This is a work in progress for Mobile (Smart) phones as a quick reference.

"Baby Brunello" or "Little-Brother Brunello", whatever you want to call this Sangiovese red wine (think Chianti), keep one thing in mind: value; these wines, though I found few in number (at least in NH), seem always to be vibrant, lively, and a great accompaniment to Italian cuisine, but costing between $15 and $35, they are almost always an excellent value.
Trending medium bodied with good acidity and noticeable mouth puckering tannin (when young) these wines are most often drunk young, they usually have red fruit flavors and subtle notes worth savoring.
