Rosso di Montalcino
is a red wine produced in the area around the village of Montalcino in the region of Tuscany in central Italy. The Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are located about 40 kilometres from the sea and around 100 kilometres from the Apennines. The climate here is Mediterranean, mild and sunny. The Amiata Mountain to the south protects the vineyards from any extreme weather conditions.
Rosso di Montalcino has enjoyed official DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) status since 1983. The specifications for Rosso di Montalcino are similar to those of its famous "big brother", Brunello di Montalcino, with the Sangiovese grape used exclusively. This red wine is less complex than the Brunello, and does not require as much ageing, although it is still a robust wine. It is described as a lively wine, combining freshness and structure.
The Rosso di Montalcino wines have also helped to build the reputation of the terroir of Montalcino. Wine lovers can discover their fine quality in the wines produced by Solaria.
