Rosso di Montalcino is harmonious, elegant, sapid, not overly exacting but a pleasant accompaniment. To look at is brilliant and limpid with a composite ruby colour; to the nose it has a good intensity and fragrance, in which one recognizes scents of fresh fruit.
To the taste it is harmonious and dry, with vigour and freshness and a good persistence. Not to be kept for long, a wine that prefers to be drunk in its youth even if it can be aged.
Its features are exalted by Tuscan dishes with their pure, clear-cut taste, but, equally, it can accompany and enhance the most varied dishes of international cuisine.
It goes well with dishes of medium structure, such as pasta with meat sauce, poultry, mushrooms or truffles, composite risottos; main courses of pork or veal with sauce.
