From the suppliers of top Michelin restaurants in Britain, this stunning wine will not disappoint you.
Much more than a basic Rosso, this is an elegant, tautly mineral wine with similar spicy, chalky, earthy notes on the nose as the Brunello and bright fruit and more spice on the palate.

The Valdicava Rosso is made from the estate's youngest vines, all of which are Brunello-designated. In 2010 Abbruzzese gave his Rosso an additional 4-5 months in cask above the usual 8-10 months. He describes the wine as "too important for a Rosso" and I tend to agree as this is by no means an approachable, easy going wine. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025. Vincenzo Abbruzzese is one of the most outspoken, passionate growers in Montalcino. His beautifully tended vineyards yield some of the richest wines in the region; and that's where most of the focus is - on the vineyards. The winery itself is unremarkable and is equipped with just the bare essentials. All of the wines are aged in large, neutral oak; what comes through is Abbruzzese's commitment to low yields, sustainable farming and non-interventionalist wine-making consistently demonstrate richness and excellent structure.
