The strength of the Cantina di Montalcino lies in its ability to draw fruit from all over the zone. This means the power of wines from the south can be moderated by the elegance and aromatics found in wines from the north of the zone. The wines have a freshness allied to the power and structure typical of good Brunello. The Cantina di Montalcino was founded in 1975 and was acquired by the co-operative Cantine Leonardo in 1990. The same ethos of quality which now imbues the Cantine Leonardo, is also present in the Cantina at Montalcino.
Purple-red in colour, with good depth and structure. Intensely perfumed on the nose, with aromas of fresh fruit such as cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants, with a spicy finish. In the mouth, the wine is full bodied, with good depth and richness, attractive fruit and well balanced acidity.
