Votto Vines Welcomes New Italian Imports

Lorenzo Melani Chianti DOCG 2021, Lorenzo Melani Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2020, Lorenzo Melani Rosso Toscana IGT 2021 and Lorenzo Melani Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2017.

Votto Vines welcomed a new line of Italian imports to its Connecticut distribution portfolio: the Lorenzo Melani line from Cantina di Montalcino. Founded in 1970 and the only cooperative winery in the Brunello area, Cantina di Montalcino counts 94 members, small farms that treat about 160 hectares of vineyards, on average less than 2 hectares each, located between 120 and 650 meters above sea level. They produce quality grapes for a total of about 76,000 bottles, including Rosso di Montalcino DOC, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva. The new celebratory label Lorenzo Melani is a symbol of those who make Cantina di Montalcino’s “Hectares of Nectar,” through its history and traditions of the territory.
