Tech Sheet


The minimum alcoholic content for a Rosso di Montalcino is 12% vol.  and it requires 10 months of minimum aging.  Poggio dell’Aquila Rosso di Montalcino is 100% Brunello declassified, and it is not blended with any other variety.

It is the quality of the vintage and especially the high quality standards of Renzo Cosimi (the wine maker/owner) to determinate if the Brunello is complex enough or if he prefers to declassify it and call it Rosso di Montalcino.

Brunello grape is a particular clone of Sangiovese called “Sangiovese Grosso” (Big Sangiovese) and literally Brunello means “Little dark one”, so named for the deep dark color of its skin.

A perfect complement to highly seasoned first courses as well as roasted meat or steak . Best served at  60°-64° F.
