This product is currently sold out.
Podere Scopetone actually produce fewer bottles (1,400 per vintage) of their organic Rosso di Montalcino than their Brunello, demonstrating the seriousness with which they craft this often forgotten wine.
This is a delicious example of Sangiovese that is made in a savoury, but refreshing style. It's drinking very well now, with the light oak aging seamlessly adding a touch of structure to the bright cherry, thyme, and mineral notes that make us adore quality Rosso di Montalcino. Yet what distinguishes Scopetone's Rosso is that element of blood and iron that is engrained within. This is a savage Rosso that is an incredible value. Farmed organically and bottled with low doses of SO2.

Podere Scopetone is an old name in Brunello, but one that has changed many hands. After the death of Angela Abbarachi's husband, she passed on control of the estate to a young couple from Montalcino, Loredana Tanganelli and Antonio Brandi.
These two have brought on famed Sangiovese expert Maurizio Castelli to bring refinement to these organically-tended vines.
