One of the most sought after wines from Montalcino, Montosoli is consistently a blockbuster red. Its intense ruby red color tends toward elegant garnet with age. On the nose, it shows a complex personality with a delicious blend of black cherry, raspberry, violet, licorice, vanilla and black pepper. Extremely enticing, opulent and elegant on the palate, with a warm, long-lasting finish, Montosoli is a wine for special occasions. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with beef bourgignon and stroganoff, lamb shank, and roasted rabbit.

Wine EnthusiastBalancing power and grace, this wine delivers alluring aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry compote, grilled herb, licorice and tar. Vibrant acidity and firm, velvety tannins provide freshness and structure, while a hint of pipe tobacco closes the lingering finish. Drink 2020-2032.

Wine SpectatorThis finds good equilibrium between the ripe berry, cherry, tobacco, iron and tea notes. Firm and chewy, with hints of leather and underbrush on the long aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,250 cases made.
