Brunello di Montalcino DOCG has a younger brother called Rosso di Montalcino DOC. Both come from the Tuscany region of Italy. Both are made from 100% Sangiovese.

The Rosso di Montalcino DOC classification originated in 1984 to create a fresher wine that needed less aging than Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.

The DOC is lighter and require only six months in oak and one year total aging before release.

This classification enables the producers to make money from the DOC while waiting for the DOCG wine to age.
