2017 Baricci Rosso di Montalcino

SKU #1400196 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Mature berry, sunbaked earth, underbrush and eucalyptus aromas lift out of the glass along with whiffs of clove. On the full-bodied palate, taut, polished tannins support fleshy black cherry, ripe cranberry and a hint of dried herbs. (KO)  (7/2019)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 id ruby. Very mineral and brooding with an undertow of ripe fruit. Plenty of concentrated, ripe cherry and strawberry fruit and muscular yet finely built tannins. Long, firm finish that is elegant at the same time. Could do with a little more age. (WS) 17/20 points  (2/2019)

Decanter

 Delightfully elegant nose of rose and violet over ripe cherries. Crisp and crunchy, with refreshing acidity. (panel tasting)  (6/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Founded in 1968, the historic Baricci estate is celebrating its 50th anniversary with this set of new releases. The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino impresses for its freshness and purity. There are no overt signs of the hot vintage other than the slightly darker color. Fruit for this wine comes from the property's lower-elevation vineyards but careful canopy management allowed for extra shade to protect the clusters from the scorching summer heat. The fruit is well-balanced with cherry and blackberry, and the alcohol is nicely contained. (ML)  (7/2019)

K&L Notes

Nello Baricci and his family have lived and farmed Sangiovese on their southeastern-facing slope of the Montosoli hill since the 1930s. Their wines are pure, supple, lithe and complex; they are full of tobacco, sweet earth, licorice, violets, rosemary and have long and persistent finishes, as evidenced in this fantastic Rosso, meant to drink now and over the next five years.

Woo-hoo! Baricci’s is back in town! Ever time I raise a glass of this wine to my lips; it brings me back to Montaclino. Why? because there is so much Montaclino in the glass. This Rosso reveals perfumed ripe fruit of plum, cassis and kirsch, some leather and cassis, mid- pallet and earthiness that meld into ripe strawberries, spices and minerals on the long finish. ( Warning !!! this will sell out quickly and yes, I am going to put some down).
