2014 ROSSO DI MONTALCINO FROM AZIENDA AGRICOLA FONTERENZA: NATALIE’S WINE OF THE WEEK! This 100% Sangiovese from the hills of Montalcino is speaking my Italian love language this Valentine’s Day 🌹
Twin sisters Margarita and Francesca Padovani are true cupids 💘, making wines that you are sure to fall in love with since 1997 on their charming 4 hectare biodynamic estate – which sits 1,300 feet above sea level on rich quartz soils.
The Rosso di Montalcino is a bold beauty, and there’s a reason I have a crush on it! The grapes are macerated for over a month, and aged for 20+ months in large Slovenian oak casks. Black cherry, plum, gingerbread, dark chocolate, and tobacco on the nose, and a structured yet juicy palate to complete this perfect match 😍
