Wine Description:
Castiglion del Bosco Rosso di Montalcino is a premium red wine produced by the renowned Castiglion del Bosco winery in the Montalcino appellation of Tuscany, Italy. The wine is made from Sangiovese grapes grown in the estate's vineyards, which are situated at an altitude of 350-450 meters above sea level. The vineyards benefit from a unique microclimate and soil composition, which impart distinctive flavors and aromas to the wine. The winemaking process involves careful selection of the grapes, followed by fermentation and aging in oak barrels for a period of time. The resulting wine is a medium-bodied, elegant and complex red with notes of red fruit, spice, and earthy undertones. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

This Castiglion del Bosco Rosso di Montalcino is a complex and elegant expression of the Sangiovese grape. The nose is filled with intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, and balsamic notes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and dense with a velvety texture and a long finish. Notes of cedar and tobacco lead to a lingering hint of dark chocolate. This is a well-structured and well-rounded wine that pairs perfectly with grilled meats and hard cheeses. Read more
Taste Flavor

Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
