Tasting Notes

'The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a very pretty and appealing wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and spice are front and center. The Rosso captures all of the flamboyance that Cupano is so well known for, but naturally in the more mid-weight style of Rosso. This is an extroverted, heady style, to be sure, and it works well.' Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

More Info

If you were a grape, this would be where you went on your holidays.  At Cupano, perched on a beautiful ridge near Camigliano that slopes down to the Ombrone river, they harvest everything by hand and use a horse and plough to tend the soil.One of the things that demonstrates the great attention to detail shown by Cupano is that owner & winemaker, Lionel Cousin, walks through his vineyard every day removing individual berries with a pair of nail scissors. It is winemaking on a miniaturist scale. Compare that to the infamous story about one of Australia's huge wineries, where the double-width mechanical harvesters went through the vineyards with such indiscriminate disregard that when they went to press the grapes, one of the workers found a bicycle in the crusher.
