Stella di Campalto only has one new wine to present this year, and that is the 2013 Rosso di Montalcino. This wine is right out of Stella's celebrated Sangiovese playbook. It shows a beautiful sense of crispness and brightness that translates to both the bouquet and the palate. Wild roses and cherries give the wine a sense of warmth and liveliness. Indeed, those delicate floral aromas are very specific to both the vintage and the house style.
