The Rosso di Montalcino 3 L by Antinori is a red wine produced in the Pian delle Vigne estate from 100% Sangiovese grapes. A fresh and mineral wine that conquers the hearts of aficionados.
Antinori's Rosso di Montalcino 3 L shows a lively ruby red color in the glass. The nose has notes of ripe red fruit such as plum and red currant, which are mixed with pleasant sensations of dog rose and Mediterranean herbs such as sage and oregano. In the mouth it is lively and fresh, with silky tannins. Aromas of pulpy red fruit give fullness and good persistence.
After the harvest, the grapes are taken to the cellar where they are de-stemmed and softly pressed. Alcoholic fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks for about 8-10 days, at 25 ° C. Finally, Antinori's Rosso di Montalcino 3 L ages in large wooden barrels for about 7 months before being bottled.
