Sweet tobacco, dried red cherry, cedar, rosemary, mint and anise give the Rosso lovely aromatic complexity, but it is the wine's body and resonance that stand out most. A wine of real stature and depth, Biondi-Santi's 2015 Rosso is all class, not to mention a real overachiever in my tastings and a rare Rosso that delivers the goods big time. Sadly, it won't come cheaply. -- Antonio Galloni

The first taste of this vintage is from the Rosso di Montalcino, released in June 2018. It is made from the estate's vines aged between 5-10 years, and the wine is aged for a year in Slavonian oak casks. While it doesn't have the density or complexity of a Brunello, it is a gorgeous expression of pure and crunchy red cherry and raspberry fruit, layered with green tea, rose, orange peel and sweet earth. The tannins are like fine powder, dissolving slowly to leave behind a lingering minerality. Absolutely succulent, and an auspicious harbinger of Biondi Santi's 2015 Brunellos.

The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino will be released in June of this year. This wine is beautifully endowed with bright fruit flavors of cherry and cassis that lift effortlessly from the bouquet. The warm growing season has helped shape soft and lasting fruit flavors. The wine is fresh and snappy crisp in terms of mouthfeel.- ML

On the linear palate, taut fine-grained tannins support dried cherry, orange zest, star anise and a hint of green tea before a rather drying finish. Drink after 2020. KERIN O’KEEFE

A finely structured Rosso with firmness and density, showing plums and a hint of citrus. Medium body. Fresh finish. Drink now.
