Characteristics of the Rosso di Montalcino Doc

The red Montalcino of the Biondi Santi winery has an intense ruby red color, not crossable from the light because it is satin and without reflections. The aroma is deep, intense, with vanilla hints. The taste is harmonic on the palate, structured, warm, very sapid and long persistent.

 

The Rosso di Montalcino wine is perfect with local courses. The hand-made pasta with meat sauces or with grilled meats are ideal matches, in addition to the one with furred or feathered game. It is perfect also with meat in humid or with baked rabbit. It needs a settling time of 2 hours, and it has to be served at 18°-20°C in Grand Ballon wine glasses.
