La Rasina, "Ines" Rosso di Montalcino, Italy 2014

This '14 "baby Brunello" is a rustic beauty, crackling with vibrant acidity and filling the mouth with juicy red and black fruits that layer with dusty earth, new leather, herbs, violet petals, cigar wrapper, and telltale Montalcino cypress needles. Beautifully balanced, this wine seamlessly melds its fine-grained tannins, elegant acidity, sweet fruits, and subtle minerality in a captivating whole. Deriving from organically tended vines, Sangiovese Grosso grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and this wine, a declassified Brunello, ages for 24 months in barrels, followed by six months in bottle before release.
