From the producer: Harvest 2016 has much to show. It is a vintage characterized by intense, fruity aromas and a vibrant acidity which bodes well for a long life - even for the youngest wine of Tenuta Greppo, the Rosso di Montalcino. This wine charms with its immediate generosity, both on the nose and on the palate, and exhibits a distinct personality, typical of Tenuta Greppo. A bright ruby red colour, this elegant Rosso di Montalcino opens with a veritable explosion of sweet fruity aromas, going from small berry fruits such as raspberries and red currant, to cherries, plums and pomegranate, interwoven with flowery notes of violets and wisteria in flower and delicately tickled by hints of fresh Mediterranean herbs. The structure is firm and vibrant and the flavour profile is refreshing and sincere, leading to a long, savoury finish where hints of violets and red fruits linger.

Professional Reviews

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"Underbrush, wild berry, rose and camphor aromas waft out of the glass along with whiffs of rosemary and graphite on this medium-bodied red. It's linear, savory and balanced, delivering red-cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white-pepper flavors set against vibrant acidity and polished tannins. It shows breeding and finesse. It's ready now or you could hold for even more complexity." -Kerin O'keefe
