Tasting Notes: Cherry, Blackberry, Leather, Earth
Tornesi is hallmark name in the historical Brunello town of Montalcino. As a family they have owned agricultural land in this area since the 1700's. A breed of true Tuscan farmers, farming organically, Maurizio Tornesi's is the epitome of a true, authentic and generous "contadino" (peasant).
If Rosso Di Montalcino is a "baby Brunello", then Tornesi's "Canto Del Cuculo rosso" is none other than a "baby Rosso". It's made from the youngest vines and fermented in stainless steel tanks. It's fresh, vibrant and delicate expression of Sangiovesse made in Montalcino.
