Bellaria - Rosso di Montalcino 'Bellaria' DOCG 2016
Short Description: This is an amazingly delicious Rosso Di Montalcino produced by Bellaria. Made of 100% Sangiovese grapes handpicked by father and son.
When you open a bottle of this Montalcino, your nose will be engulfed with beautiful perfumes and aromas of ripe fruit. Enjoy drinking this little beauty along friends at a table with cold cut meats, cheese and olives. Once you taste it, your palate will be filled with a rich and dense mouthful of red deliciousness from start to finish.
This Sangiovese is much more precise and finer than their bolder and riper predecessors.
Aroma: For a Rosso di Montalcino, this is quite decadent on the nose with treacle, plum pie, tar and liquorice, as well as resin. Deep ruby red in colour.
Taste: In the mouth, elegant, sell structured, with plenty of fresh berries on the finish.
Full-bodied and intense, hints of earthy foliage and ultra-fine tannins, with an underlying crispness and linear thread but there is a fine streak of acidity that really lifts this through the chewy tannins. A sappy finish. Drink now.
