Rosso De Montalcino "La Ragnaie" (MARFA)
This is a very serious Rosso di Montalcino that combines freshness and drinkability with intensity of fruit and an elegant finish. This wine outclasses many Brunello di Montalcino's with relative ease and remains a tremendous value. It has a deep ruby red color and an aromatic bouquet of black cherries, balsamic, herbs and spices. Medium-bodied, it is round and smooth on the palate with flavors of cherry and blueberry that give way to a long cherry pit finish.
