Rosso di Montalcino DOC - Piombaia
Piombaia’s Rosso di Montalcino is a surprisingly fresh wine, with a certain elegance and persistence. Made with a very natural approach, the wine was vinified in steel tanks and aged for a full year in small barrels of oak. Pairs well with pasta dishes with meat sauce, fresh and medium-aged cheeses.
