User Reviews for Frescobaldi Montesodi

Winemaker's Notes:

Chianti Rùfina, DOCG 100% Sangiovese, Montesodi is a single-vineyard cru produced at Castello di Nipozzano, and is planted exclusively to sangiovese. This wine has its roots deep in Tuscan traditions and is one of the wines that best represents the winemaking philosophy of Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi. Serving suggestions Roast or grilled lamb, game birds (pheasant), pan-fried beef. Tasting Notes Strikingly intense and brilliant purple. The nose shows rich, concentrated fruit, with abundant blackcurrant and blueberry preceding clean-edged impressions of plum preserves, while black pepper and cinnamon nuances mark a very lengthy finale.It develops quite full-bodied on the palate, warm and generous, with a well-built, velvety suite of tannins. The progression through the finish is complex and lingering, complemented throughout by a judicious acidity that perfectly balances the alcohol. Technical Information Yield/Hectare: 35 Hl/Ha Harvest period: Beginning of october Vineyard practices: Manual Fermentation vats: Stainless steel Fermentation temperature: <35° Length of fermentation: 10 days Length of maceration on the skins: 30 days Malolactic fermentation: Immediately done after the alcoholic fermentation Maturation method: New barriques of split oak Length of maturation: 18 months
