Description

Podere Canalino Rosso di Montalcino 2015 is a super smooth fruity red wine – think sweet and slightly sour cherries and juicy baked plums, fruits that are typical of Sangiovese wine. But this wine also has really soft tannins and the savoury notes that you would expect from a Sangiovese wine showing a bit of age. Rosso di Montalcino is like Brunello di Montalcino but it does not have the same lengthy ageing stipulations; consequently Rosso di Montalcino is usually a fruitier, lighter and younger version of Brunello. Podere Canalino Rosso di Montalcino 2015 however has been ageing in bottle for a number of years (after a very short time in large oak barrels) and so it tastes like a (much more expensive) Brunello. I absolutely love this Rosso wine; it tastes really refined, a wine to be savoured. I wouldn’t decant it but would advise giving it a swirl in the glass to shake off any slight oxidative aromas which might be evident after a long time in bottle – but that is all it needs to then reveal all those fruit flavours, so many in fact that this wine leaves you with a long juicy finish. It’s delicious!

 

Podere Canalino has been in the same family since 1800 – of all the wineries I work with, this has to be the longest time in one family. The estate is just 4 hectares with Sangiovese planted on ancient terracing on the hill that houses the medieval town of Montalcino. With particularly low yields, the vines produce wines with intense fruity flavours. Production is sustainable with organic practices and as little intervention as possible – no herbicides or pesticides are used. They also make a Brunello di Montalcino which I can recommend but this Rosso punches well above its weight and could easily be mistaken for a Brunello.

How to enjoy this wine

This has to be the ultimate “contemplation wine”, perfect to drink on its own as the tannins are so soft and the fruit flavours so fresh. But it would also be great to drink with most meats including game, goose and duck, mushroom-based dishes and milder cheeses including goats’ and sheeps’ cheeses. Nothing too strongly flavoured however as you wouldn’t want to mask the amazing taste of this wine.

 

Serve at: 14 – 17°C

Producer's Notes

Translated “Colour: clear, ruby red tending towards garnet.

 

Aroma: notes of small ripe red fruits are perceived on the nose accompanied by sweet notes from the ageing in wood.

 

Taste: warm, soft, with ripe tannins that are refined from the bottle ageing“.
