Rosso di Montalcino DOC is the younger brother of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Both are from Tuscany. Both are made of 100% Sangiovese grapes.

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

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

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