Wine SpectatorDesignation Best Values. Heady flavors of cassis, blackberry, violet and ink mark this intense red. Powerful, yet fruity and fresh, with a peppery, minerally finish. Grill some beef for this bad boy. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2025. 4,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Monrosso is a darkly concentrated Tuscan red with plump fruit, ripe cherry, blackberry marmalade and exotic spice. This is a rich and textured red wine that offers lots of soft and simple primary fruit on the finish. This wine is composed of 50% Syrah with equal parts Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that together only see six months of oak aging.
