Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Previously appreciated and widely known under various denominations, the Rosso di Montalcino acquired a precise identity and official recognition with the issuance of the Denominazione di Origine Controllata in 1983. The community can now boast of having three denominations of origin: Brunello, which requires extended aging; Rosso di Montalcino, a younger wine that combines a special vivacity and freshness with a superb structure, and the Moscadello di Montalcino.
