2010 Salicutti Sorgente Rosso di Montalcino
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Sangiovese
Deep, bright red. Sexy aromas of spicy red plum, ripe red cherry and kirsch are complicated by woodsmoke and flowers. Silky and rather lush on entry, with a creamy sweetness and considerable finesse to its ripe, sweet, soft red fruit and spice flavors. Fine-grained tannins and a luscious mouthfeel characterize this accessibly, already appealing Rosso. Owner Francesco Leanza also makes a Brunello di Montalcino from the Sorgente vineyard in the better years.
