Localization: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Notes: Elegant and refined with alluring redand black fruits, flowers and mocha in the nose and mouth, this Rosso di Montalcino is made from the younger Brunello vines.
Food Pairing: It will make a perfect accompaniment to pork dishes, especially with rosemary accents, grilled tuna, pasta pomodoro or bolognese, and/or with fine Italian cheeses.
The Domain: Voliero is a second project of the very talented Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera and other producers started in 2006. These grapes come from the northern end of the Montalcino zone because they wanted to enhance the different aspects of the this extraordinary terroir. As the grapes for Voliero are from a cooler area, Andrea continues his minimalist approach to winemaking, and wants to only amplify the purity and finesse of the Northern Zone.
