Rosso di Montalcino, Pian delle Querci - 2020

Item # 39069 750mL

Vinous and elegant, this Rosso di Montalcino was aged in old Slavonian casks for just under a year before bottling.

They have a mere 2 ha of vines dedicated to making this fine Tuscan red wine that you can drink while you're waiting for your Brunello to age.
