Description

“his wine will hit the market this October. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a beauty with bright and crunchy fruit that is impossible to ignore. If a Rosso can taste so good, we have great things to look forward to when the 2016 Brunellos hit the market in under two years' time. From a farming point of view, 2016 was not as easy as the no-brainer 2015 growing season. This vintage had more rain and mildew-related issues. Some vineyard spots even saw damaging hail. Pian dell'Orino made more Rosso and IGT wine in 2016 to make up for these challenges. But the UV light and the luminous quality of 2016 sparked magical results, says Pian dell'Orino proprietor Jan Hendrik Erbach. The fruit is glossy, firm and pure.” 94 points, (ML) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

“The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a pretty, gracious wine with tons of Sangiovese floral and savory notes. Black cherry, game, licorice, menthol and spice add character to this vibrant, deep Rosso. I would give the 2016 a few years in bottle to be at its best, as it is presently very shut down, its considerable appeal notwithstanding. This is such a gorgeous and expressive wine.” 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
