Description

The Cortonesi winery is a family-owned winery native of Montalcino. The strong attachment to the territory has always been an essential part of the work of the winery, based not only on the respect of the surrounding environment but also on the will of improving in terms of technical and cultural evolution and not only overcoming the ideas from the past. Today Tommaso, Marco and Giulio continue the winemaking activity in the name of the family tradition, because everything comes from the family and from the strong link of the Cortonesi family with Montalcino.

Tasting Notes

This Rosso di Montalcino is elegant, with aromas of black, blue and purple fruit. It also has hints of violets and is very well structured with soft tannins on the palate. It brings out the best in rich pasta dishes, stews and mushrooms sauces. Pair it with lamb (roasted or stewed), risottos with tons of parmesan and tomato-based sauces.

92 Points Rober Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Cortonesi makes a very satisfying Rosso that drinks and performs above its weight class…There is plenty of dark cherry and fresh fruit at its core. That center is framed by earthy notes of iris root and chestnut husk…”

92 Points James Suckling – “Attractive aromas of ripe cherries, dried orange peel, dried flowers and walnuts. Medium-bodied, structured and polished with fine tannins and juicy acidity. Balanced and even with a lengthy, mineral finish. Drink or hold.”
