Frescobaldi Montesodi Chianti Rufina Riserva 2011
External Reviews for Frescobaldi Montesodi Chianti Rufina Riserva
Deep red with garnet colour; aromas of black cherry/blackberry fruit with cedar, smoke and vanilla notes; extra dry, full bodied, with balanced fruit flavours, notes of smoke and tar, good acidity with a touch of spice, licorice and leather; long finish.
This is elegant, with perfumed aromas of rose, currant, cherry, licorice and spice. Racy and firm, showing fine harmony and a long, spice- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. A bit austere on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.
Aromas of dark-skinned berry, exotic spice and wildflower lead the nose on this concentrated but refined wine. The intense palate offers layers of ripe black cherry, juicy raspberry, licorice, clove and tobacco alongside firm, velvety tannins. It’s a compelling expression of Chianti Rùfina. Drink 2016–2021.
