Rosso del Palazzone, Il Palazzone - NV

Item # 31261 750mL

The vineyards at Il Palazzone are all planted with Sangiovese Grosso, the grape that is known in Montalcino as Brunello. Think of this bottle as baby Brunello as it in fact comes from barrels of Brunello that were, in essence, declassified and from multiple vintages which is why this is marked as a non-vintage wine.

Staff Pick Notes

Vivacious, full-bodied Sangiovese Grasso from an esteemed Montalcino producer. It's made from a blend of vintages that did not make the final cut for Il Palazzone's Brunello di Montalicino so it's labeled non-vintage. If you are curious about which vintages specifically there is a lot number on the back of each bottle that you can check online. Think of this wine as a well-rehearsed under study. Not the marquee name, but you'll remember its performance nonetheless. The nose is filled with dried fruits, cherry sauce, soil, and espresso beans. It's supple on the palate, with a finely chiseled tannic structure. Phenomenal quality for the price of the bottle. This is a show stopper.

Sangiovese has shown itself in recent years to be an excellent complement to Cabernet Sauvignon in red Italian blends; this grape duo forms the basis of many of the...

When you think of Tuscan wine, think of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds (Vernaccia is the only white wine made here). Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most complex expressions of Sangiovese, has the best aging potential. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows the softer side of the grape, containing up to 20% of other varieties. Young Chianti often smells of fresh fruit and herbs, while Chianti Classico Riserva can be dark and brooding. The term “Super Tuscans”...
