Sangiovese (San-jo-vay-zay)

Paradiso di Cacuci Tech Sheets

Montalcino, a picturesque medieval town, is situated in Tuscany and surrounded by rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves. Winemaking dates back thousands of years to the Etruscans and the Romans. Rosso di Montalcino (’mont-tall-cheeno’) is the little brother to one of Italy’s most prestigious and renowned wines, Brunello.

Rosso di Montalcino is younger and more approachable wine compared to Brunello. It has gained its own renown for its fruit-forward, vibrant, easy drinking nature and value. This medium bodied wine displays notes of fresh cherry, raspberry, black pepper, herbs, and leather. Elegant finish with fine dusty tannins. Aged for 1 year in Slavonian oak. Pairs well with all types of meats, hard cheeses, grilled vegetables, pizza, and pasta.

Paradiso di Cacuci is located in a small ‘corner of Paradise’ in the northwestern area of Montalcino. With their northerly location within the appellation, all of Paradiso’s wines show bright acidity, elegance, and finesse. The winery was founded in 1964 and was one of the first to belong to the Brunello di Montalcino consorzio. Wine production is centered on perpetuation of tradition along with modern techniques and the values of the consorzio
