Rosso di Montalcino, Albatreti 2018
The Albatreti winery was founded by Gaetano Salvioni, his father and mother owned small properties in the surroundings of Montalcino so viticulture and winemaking have always been a significant part of their lives. The property was almost abandoned after the great frost of January 1985 when about 1000 olive trees were killed by the polar temperatures. Only a small vineyard (0.15 ha), high density planted, resisted the frost. Gaetano and his wife, from whose family the property originated, decided to shift the production to grapes and wine. Alongside the small old vineyard in 1999 they planted 2.5 hectares of Sangiovese, followed by another 2 hectares few years later.
Gaetano’s Rosso di Montalcino ages in a mixture of stainless steel and oak Tonneaux with a further 12 months in bottle before release.This wine is delicate and ruby red in colour. It burst with flavours full of morello cherries, baked bramble fruit, violets and is savory on the finish. Crisp, fresh acidity and fine, crunchy tannins cover the palate really well, with a rustic edge.
It is an ideal pairing with red meat dishes, game or aged cheeses.
