Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2018
|Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino
|Fattoria La Lecciaia
Vivid red. Easygoing aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs and spices. Steely and fresh, finishing clean with average length.
Here's a lean entry-level value wine to drink with simple meals among family and friends. The La Lecciaia 2018 Rosso di Montalcino shows medium-dark fruit and good concentration, backed by fruity texture and succulence. There is a touch of sour cherry, but that tartness is amply balanced out by the soft spice and earthiness you get on the close.
This has somewhat muddled aromas of stewed prune, resin and game that carry over to the lean, somewhat diluted palate along with a hint of almond. It has bright acidity while dusty, fleeting tannins offer loose support.
