Tasting Notes

This wine is produced by the Cortonesi family, renowned for their Brunello di Montalcino. The Leonus is made from declassified Brunello grapes grown in a single vineyard in Montalcino, making it an excellent value wine that is often referred to as a baby Brunello. This Rosso Toscano is juicy and fresh, full of red cherries, and dark berries on the nose. It has great structural balance and is a perfect everyday wine. Because of it’s marked acidity it pairs well with tomato sauce and herbs. It will be the perfect match for pizza or lasagna, antipasti or roasted meats.

"This is a lovely ripe and blue-fruited Tuscan red, essentially a rosso di Montalcino yet labelled as IGT Toscana. Blueberry fruit, clean and fresh and ripe mingle on an oak-backwards frame, - this is all about the fruit and the immediacy. Tannins are likewise supple and acid juicy, making this a widely appealing wine for all drinkers - enough substance to satisfy the punters. A very sharp value indeed, yet again."
