Another outstanding Rosato find from the late Gentleman of Montalcino – which, is in fact, the last vintage under Franco’s supervision. Right from the glass, the striking singularity of this wine shows through with its stunning orange-copper hue. The nose immediately reveals explosive notes of orange citrus, deep cherry, and salinity. With air, the wine once again opens on the palate and is a cornucopia of joy with nuances of orange blossoms, tangerines, pronounced grapefruit, rose petals, black cherry, stony minerality, herbs, tea, and a hint of oak. This wine is more precise than the previous ripe 2011, and there is the sangiovese hallmark acidity to balance this medium-full bodied gem out. Look for the delicate and lingering citrus-cherry finish. Worth the search and the wait.
