Caludio Tipa, owner of the famed Poggio di Sotto estate in Montalcino knew that “little sister” neighboring region Montecucco was capable of great things. He put his money where his mouth was (for real!)—and the result is a fantastic expression of Sangiovese—without a “big sister” price. This Riserva is a bold, well-balanced wine with aromas of blackberry fruit and savory spices, powerful, well-integrated tannins, and a warm, lingering finish. Perfect for aged cheeses, wild game, or grilled Porterhouse.
