Brunello di Montalcino red wine from Tuscany, Italy, is recognized as one of the best wines. Brunello di Montalcino red wine is actually a Sangiovese Clone that responds amazingly well in the area around the Montalcino hilltop. Brunello di Montalcino red wine also has a younger sibling, called Rosso di Montalcino that is aged a shorter period of time and is more approachable when younger.
About: The estate of Castiglion del Bosco grows only Sangiovese, and its entire line of wines is an expression of the two local denominations: three different interpretations of Brunello and the Rosso di Montalcino. But winemaking rigor and Sangiovese are not the only voices of Castiglion del Bosco, since the winery speaks with an international voice as well. Prima Pietra, the second vineyard property of Massimo Ferragamo, lies in Riparbella, on the Tuscan coast, with its 11 hectares (27 acres) of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
