2017 Monte Solaio Tino Rosso


IGT Toscana Rosso
Tino Rosso is a blend of 40% each cabernet sauvignon and merlot, and 20% petit verdot. The grapes are hand-harvested, and the juice is fermented in stainless steel before spending nine months in French oak prior to bottling. The Tino’s lovely, velvety tannins make it a perfect match with fall’s stews and braises: think osso buco, or a long-simmered ragù.

Monte Solaio’s Tino Rosso is an intense ruby-red color. The wine is pleasantly strong and complex, with flavors of ripe red fruits, licorice and vanilla. This wine is fresh, smooth and agreeably tannic. Grapes are harvested by hand, then transferred to the cellar, in the beginning of September for the various Merlot parcels and the first days of October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Next, a soft pressing in a stainless steel tank followed by the start of alcoholic fermentation with temperatures gradually increasing up to 28° C. Maceration is prolonged even after fermentation, up to a total of 20 days. The wine is put into French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. Aging takes place for about nine months in barriques, and then at least three months in bottle before being put on the market.

Monte Solaio Winery

Monte SolaioMonte Solaio is a stellar property in the Suvereto region. The estate sits on 178 hectares in the Campiglia Marittima, the end of a mountainous spur that culminates in steep slopes facing the ocean just a few miles away across the Val di Cornia. The south- and west-facing slopes catch the sun’s heat, but the breezes off the ocean make the climate ideal for complex, expressive wines.

The soil here is the real treasure, with a heart of minerals and limestone providing an ideal environment for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Vermentino, Viogner and Ansonica.
