    Rosso di Montalcino "Bassolino" DOC 2014

    Due to the climate and the small quantities, owner Caroline Pobitzer decided not to vinify Brunello 2014. The Montalcino lover will therefore get a Rosso Bassolino in his glass, which is certainly one of the best of its vintage. Deep ruby red. A bewitching bouquet of ripe red cherries, some raspberry jam, violets, cinnamon and minerals. Dense and lush in the mouth, with creamy aromas of ripe red cherry and violet notes supported by a harmonious acidity. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Here's a bit of breaking news. When I went to the winery to taste this wine, it was geared up to be classified as a Brunello di Montalcino. The idea was to use the best fruit that could be obtained from the Bassolino vineyard in this difficult vintage. Only 3,000 bottles plus a few magnums were made. Just hours after my tasting, I got an email from proprietor Caroline Pobitzer saying that the Brunello I had tasted, would in fact be declassified as Rosso. In effect, the 2014 Rosso di Montalcino Bassolino has the DNA and the pedigree of a Brunello, but the qualities of the vintage make the wine lean on impact and ephemeral in terms of its bouquet. It's all about grace and poise without that distinctive brawn you get in Brunello. But if your palate veers toward the light, elegant and fragile side of the Sangiovese spectrum, you should scoop up as many bottles as possible because this wine speaks directly to those tastes. The wine is beautifully balanced and carefully acidic in all the right spots." Robert Parker
