Simikameen Valley, Gibbston Valley, Rosso di Montalcino

The first area of Central Otago to be planted with vines, the coolest of the sub-regions with the latest harvests of Pinot Noir in the region.
Rosso di Montalcino is a large Tuscan DOC, to the south of the Chianti Classico region in central Italy. It is in the same defined area as the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Both subregions are located in the heart of Tuscany.

The region was established in 1984 in order to make the most of the fruit from younger vines of new plantings, wines that require less ageing, with only 6 months in oak. Declassified Brunello also makes it in to this Rosso di Montalcino classification.

Today this wine is revered for its great distinction, depth of black cherry and wild-berry fruit, and careful use of oak revealed in a hint of spice and vanilla. It is a full-bodied wine made from 100% Sangiovese, predominantly the local Saingiovese Grosso form. The wines are released one year after the harvest to retain all the freshness and fruitiness of a young wine, yet they have the intensity and depth of fruit that only the Montalcino terroir is capable of delivering.
