Description

A 5,000-bottle release, the Palazzo 2018 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a medium-dark appearance with soft layers of ripe cherry and black plum. The fruit in this wine tastes soft and plush and is nicely balanced overall. There is a slightly tart or bitter note on the close, but it would probably totally disappear if paired next to a food rich in cream or cheese. - WA87

Produced with the same grapes as Brunello and with a similar vinification. Aged in oak casks for one year.

It has a fruity perfume, rich, intense and persistent. Its great structure does not in the least diminish the freshness of the wine, which is ready to be enjoyed with pleasure after just one year and is perfect with antipasto, pasta, poultry and red meats.- Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Cosimo Loia's estate is situated on the eastern slopes of the hills outside Montalcino. The entire property covers an area of approximately 15 hectares (37 acres) at an altitude of 310 meters (about 1,000 feet). Originally from Benevento (in Campania), Cosimo came to "Brunello land" when he married a woman from Montalcino. He fell in love with this part of Tuscany as well, and during the 1980s began to dedicate himself to wine. Palazzo's vineyards encompass 5 hectares (12 acres) and are located next to fine producers like Cerbaiona and Salvioni. There have been major structural changes in the estate over the past few years: the arrival of consulting enologist Fabrizio Ciufoli has raised the quality level, and the production has also benefited from investment that included replacing most of the traditional casks with large Slavonian oak barrels, with a few barriques added for balance. This formula has given new life to the estate, which is now managed by Cosimo's daughter Elia.
