Info about the winery

At Salicutti, they renounce stagnation with Tuscan serenity married to German meticulousness. Their azienda has now been converted from organic to biodynamic farming, with the future goal of a self-sufficient place. Housing bee colonies, an orchard and vegetable garden, and generating energy from their own groundwater, the idea of the "Cosmo di Salicutti" - a place of self-sufficiency - is coming true. When it comes to wine, the Eichbauer family has listened to their heart and the living feeling of the village of Montalcino and has said goodbye to international grape varieties. All the more reason for their grateful concentration on the local Sangiovese (which, yes, is feminine in my eyes). For the first time with the 2015, Salicutti gives a testimony of Brunello di Montalcino from three single vineyards. Differentiated and thoughtful, this result of heart, handiwork, and intellect allows us to look forward to an exciting future.


In slightly translucent ruby red with garnet rim, the wine shows itself clear and shiny in the glass.


In contrast to its colour, the nose of the wine is dark and earthy. Powerful aromas of plum jam and elderberry cooking are complemented by notes of molasses, muscovado sugar and barley malt. They are joined by slightly peaty and smoky notes of freshly baked brown bread and roasted chestnuts. Thankfully, no sign of the Tuscan jam pot.


The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino from Salicutti shows itself straightforward and origin-related on the palate and here, too, renounces artificial extract sweetness. Instead, he replaces it with tart sincerity. Red berry fruit is refreshed on the palate many times more than the wine's aroma initially suggests. Juicy, thanks to fine-grained tannin and invigorating acidity, this wine inevitably makes clear how unimportant written down data of alcohol contents are (namely 14 %vol) when a wine simply feels coherent in itself.
