2007 Rosso della Porticcia Riserva – Montecucco DOC 750ml
From a fantastic vintage in Tuscany, this is an intense wine, brilliant ruby red in color. Complex and fragrant aromas which range from red berry fruit to the toasty and spicy sensations of the oak casks. Elegant and austere on the palate, rich and fleshy with tannins and acidity which give balance and support the intrinsic natural softness. The reserve sees more time in oak with some new. The reserve is only made in select vintages. Full-flavored dishes, red meat, wild boar and game in general. Excellent with aged cheese.
2008 Rosso della Porticcia - Montecucco DOC 750ml 2-Pack
Sangiovese for the lover of all things Tuscan, this wine is a lively ruby red color with warm garnet tones. Zippy acidity from the portion of the wine that didn't see oak. Full but with much finesse on the nose and with ample notes of berry fruit and delicate spices. Large-scale, warm, and velvety in texture. In this wine, as well, there is an excellent balance between softness and warmth, tannins and acidity, which gives much drinking pleasure. A fine match to grilled meat, roasts, stews, and aged cheese.
