We've been seeing tremendous efforts come out of Montecucco lately. Nestled between Montalcino and the Tuscan Coast, this underexposed region succeeds at a hybrid of Brunello and Supertuscan that demonstrates a natural appropriation of the latter two regions' superlative characters. This specific bottling from Amantis offers dark ripe berries with deep floral and spice notes, as well as a tannic structure that will go the distance but is juicy and approachable today. Meet the best of Tuscany old and new with this fantastic wine!

"Structured and savory, this polished wine doles out aromas and flavors of mature plum, crushed black cherry, violet, black pepper and clove. Firm but fine-grained tannins provide the framework."
