Frescobaldi Montesodi Chianti Rufina 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Cool and crisp on the nose with mineral, moss, pressed flower and an earthy/ slightly medicinal beet root tone all meshed with lovely slightly jammy strawberry fruits with just a hint of clove spice. Lots of ripe red fruits in the mouth with lovely balance and crisp, slightly austere tannins that add a brisk slightly astringent apple peel note up front. there is ample flesh here to keep things rather well rounded in the mouth and the red berry fruits fill out on the palate and lead to an herb tinged finish of moderate length. Solid and appealing Chianti 2010-2018 92pts

Great wine! Starts with a mild sweetness evolves to bring out a spicey undertone and then back to a berry like sweetness. The finish is medium dry.
