San Filippo and Martinozzi Rosso Offer 2020
Tuscan producers were pleased with the 2018 vintage. While warm, the heat wasn’t as excessive as elsewhere in Europe, and the watchwords seem to be silkiness, elegance and some surprising freshness. JANCIS ROBINSON MW
Tuscany is Tuscany. It remains the strongest beacon for the great wines of Italy around the world, and as a symbol for outstanding quality wines, it is only going to get stronger with the 2015 and 2016 vintages. JAMES SUCKLING
The wine growing area around Montalcino probably conjures up various emotions for different people. For some it may be rolling hills under a blue sky with vines and olive trees. For me it is sitting down to a glass of Rosso di Montalcino and a bowl of Pinci pasta, the idea brings a wide smile to my face straight away.
While the top tier wines of the region, their Brunello, are well known to many and are among the world’s great reds, the Rosso have an equal place in things. The spot they hold is to provide upfront pleasure and a digestible accompaniment to one’s meal while talking to their friends or family. Few wine styles provide such immediate enjoyability and are so readily accessible as the Rosso of Montalcino. Similarly few wines are so suitable to the table and a range of food.
We have just got our hands on two examples that fit this bill perfectly. From two different but great vintages and both brimming with classic Rosso character that we think are unmissable and perfect for this time of year when we tend to be looking more towards hearty food, robust discussion with friends and family around the table. Both are sensational value independently but to make the deal even better we also have a mixed dozen, six of each, that should help ease everyone through the winter.
We are offering both with a minimum 20% off in straight six packs and more than 25% off in a special mixed dozen with six of each wine, an amazing deal.
