Frescobaldi Montesodi 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"A rich, luminous ruby, with a garnet-edged rim, announces this Brunello. It develops a remarkably complex bouquet, ranging from initial scents of red and black wild berry fruit, such as blackberry and wild strawberry, then to more assertive dried plum and liqueured cherries. Next to emerge are pungent notes of spice and vanilla, which gradually yield to impressions of roasted espresso bean and tobacco leaf with subtle hints of balsam and salty mineral in the background. It displays notable smoothness and alcoholic warmth on the palate, with a lively acidity supporting mouth-filling, fine-grained tannins. It concludes with an almost-endless finish subtly laced with well-ripened fruit..." www.frescobaldi.it

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates, and more than 1,000 hectares, in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the early 14th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day. The core wine growing philosophy of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi revolves around the integrated relationship among environment, vine, climate, and man’s intervention.

Intensives Granatrot. Kompaktes Bouquet von Holunder und Kirschen, etwas Tabak. Üppige schwarze Frucht im eleganten, angenehm süssen Gaumen. Cremig und gut balanciert bis ins lang anhaltende Finale. Viel Potenzial!
