Rosso Di Montalcino 2011 Renieri

Item Number: 20 30 321 11

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

The Renieri estate is located in the southern part of Montalcino on high altitude slopes. Owner Marco Bacci puts a careful focus on his vineyards to produce the best possible fruit. His 70 acres of vines face southeast to southwest at around 1,200 above sea level. These high altitude vines are planted in unique, iron-rich "terra rossa" soil thatís rare for this region. High density plantings are utilized to create extremely low yields of fruit that is deeply flavored. This Rosso Di Motnalcino is a super value junior Brunello, 100% Sangiovese a selection from the younger vines on the estate. It shows bright forward fruit making it very enjoyable right now but there's concentration and backbone that will allow it to age gracefully in the near term. James Suckling scored it 90 points saying "Perfumed and very pretty with plums and dried flower character. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Drink or hold."
