Montalcino, non-vintage red wines | A small but growing number of producers in Montalcino are releasing non vintage red wines blended from various years. The first winery to do so was Il Palazzone with its Rosso del Palazzone. Laura Gray of Il Palazzone describes these reds as ‘perfect Christmas party wines offering a hit of Montalcino for a fraction of the price of the region’s flagship Brunello.’ Others estates to have followed this lead includ Le Ragnaie, Cupano and Campi di Fonterenza.
