Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino shows the muscle and depth of Castelnuovo in its richness and power. Layers of dark red fruit wrap around the palate in this plush, inviting Rosso. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. (Apr 2012)
The grapes are selected from the youngest Brunello di Montalcino
vineyards, or those in cooler areas. Velvety and well-balanced, medium-bodied crisp and fruity and long-lingering finish.
Maturation in Slavonian and French oak barrels for a minimum of 8 months.
|Hors d'oeuvres, first courses, vegetables, fine poultry and red meat.
