95 Wine Advocate - This flight of three Biondi-Santi wines starts off on the right foot thanks to the pristine bouquet and lively fruit of the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino. This is the entry-level wine (although the price point certainly suggests otherwise). It shows very detailed and chiseled aromas of wild cherry, cassis, dried violet, rust and orange skin. The wine carries a strong structural frame; however, the mouthfeel is ethereal and light notwithstanding.
A lovely encounter of flowers and red berry fruits, the Rosso di Montalcino 2019 reveals fresh, energetic notes of cherries, blood oranges, pomegranate, violets, and honeysuckle, followed by balsamic sensations of kitchen herbs, licorice root, and menthol. The nose and palate are fully aligned as the crunchy tannins and lively acidity blend in with this Rosso’s impressive, levigated fruity core, leading us toward a savory finish with long-lingering mineral notes
