Ridolfi 2012 Rosso di Montalcino

Item Number: 26 30 479 12

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

Ridolfi is a family owned estate with 60 acres of vineyards on the Siena side of the Montalcino hill. The vines are planted in volcanic soils, have prime exposure and high altitudes up 1000 feet above sea level. This Rosso is 100% Sangiovese from very select clones. Grapes are hand-picked and fermented slowly with a full 30 day maceration. The wine is then aged part in large Slavonian oak casks and part in small French oak barrels. After 12 months in barrel the wine is blended and aged an additional 3 months in the bottle for a supple, balanced quality. James Suckling scored it 91 points and the Wine Advocate said "dark cherry, spice and cured meat aromas that wrap gently over the palate. There’s a savory note as well that recalls the kind of seasoning and chopped herb combinations you might use to marinate meat. It’s a noteworthy wine with budding sophistication available at a very attractive price point.”
