Il Palazzone is a small producer (8,000 – 12,000 bottles per year) of the prestigious Brunello di Montalcino DOCG wine. Every year a small quantity of wine is left in the cellar. We blend this “loose” wine and make a Vino Rosso. Since it derives from several vintages, it has no vintage listed on the bottle. The grapes used to make the Vino Rosso all qualified as Brunello di Montalcino under the strict DOCG reg-ulations, though we chose to declassify them to produce this Vino Rosso. All the component wines have spent over a year in large wood barrels, resulting in a “baby” Brunello, with all the characteristics of Montalcino and Sangiovese, but with the fruit, freshness and approachability of a Rosso di Montalcino. The Rosso del Palazzone has been described by Jancis Robinson, MW as “an honest pleasurable message in the bottle from Tuscany.

Juicy and intense; the fresh playfulness of 2014 is tempered by the concentration and depth of the 2011. A perfect marriage of two challenging yet complementary vintages.
