2014 Rosso di Montalcino, Salicutti

2014 Rosso di Montalcino, Salicutti

Ref: SALI140
Red  |  Still  |  14.5% ABV

A dark nose that comes with a whiff of dark chocolate to the very beautiful dark and lightly smoky fruit. I spotted cherries and plums. The palate is instantly rich and brings instant tang. Then the spice arrives of marry with the utterly ravishing black fruit. Very spicy at the core. And the tannins are super fine, spiced and architectural. Just medium acidity. Ooh, this is lovely. "Another knockout Brunello from owner Francesco Leanza, who has transformed Salicutti into one of the world's benchmark 23 estates." Ian d'Agata on vinous.com

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Just medium depth of colour. Nose is of lovely, elegant red fruit: wild fruits, nicely crisp and very cool. Palate is snappy and red fruited with very fine integrated tannin that becomes a little more upright to a fresh, slightly incisive death. Long and snappy-fresh wine of juicy through-put. Just a lovely thing.

"…offers a beautiful sense of linearity and brightness…" Monica Larner on robertparker.com

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
