Introduction: Nestled in the heart of Tuscany, the Montalcino region holds a storied legacy in the world of Italian wine. Known for producing some of Italy's most celebrated wines, Montalcino's vineyards are graced by the Sangiovese grape, which finds its finest expression in the famed Brunello di Montalcino. The Tassi Rosso di Montalcino 2018, a sibling of the renowned Brunello, offers a captivating glimpse into the essence of this iconic terroir. Before we delve into this wine, let's uncover the distinct characteristics of Montalcino and the intriguing history behind the Tassi wine brand.

Montalcino's Viticultural Heritage: Montalcino, an enchanting hilltop town in Tuscany, has long been celebrated for its unique terroir and devotion to the Sangiovese grape. Its sun-soaked vineyards, rolling hills, and diverse microclimates provide an ideal environment for cultivating this noble varietal.
