Gea Rosso di Montalcino Paradiso di Frassina, Organic Wine, 100% Sangiovese Grosso, unique vineyard with music played to the vines, delicious and elegant Tuscan red. Often when tasting Brunello di Monalcino, I feel a little disappointed. For such an exalted wine, there is all too often a lack of intensity of fruit and an over reliance on oak flavours. Sometimes the acidity can be austere and the velvety texture that one expects from the wine can be sadly lacking. Admittedly Brunello like many fine wines is often drunk far to young for it to be at its best but nevertheless, for the price it is often not up to scratch. However Rosso di Montalcino tends to have go the other way and certainly this one from Paradiso di Frassina. The fruit is forward and vibrant, the texture perfect and the balance, spot on. This spends a year in old barrles and so no oak flavours but plenty of freshness. A delicious Sangiovese and certainly value for the price considering it is less than half the Brunello!

By the way, the Brunellos from Frassina is excellent, the 2011 is delicious although it would reward cellaring!

Paradiso di Frassina is situated 5 km from Montalcino, in a secluded position but within easy reach of the town. It is owned and run by Giancarlo Cignozzi who previously was involved with the development of such well known producers as Altesino and Caparzo. After working for many years with other producers Giancarlo decided to go it alone and found the beautiful little estate called Frassina. Surrounded by an amphitheatre of vineyards, the old stone house Paradiso di Frassina is a beautifully restored monument to the age old traditions of Tuscan wine making. The estate now comprises of 4.5 hectares of vines including 1 hectare at the top of the famous cru hilltop, Montosoli with its 70 year old vines. Giancarlo is dedicated to the pursuit of perfection in perfect symbiosis with nature. He was awarded organic certification in 2008 after 9 years of developing his organic vineyard based on playing music to the vines. This pioneering work has been such a success that it has attracted the attention of the University of Florence who are now carrying out studies to evaluate the effect of music on vine health and grape quality!
