User Reviews for Marchesi de Frescobaldi Chianti Rufina Montesodi Castello di Nipozzano

Winemaker's Notes:

A cru selection with its initial vintage in 1974, Montesodi Riserva is made only in exceptional growing years. It is produced from Sangiovese grown in the Montesodi vineyard, which, at 400 metres’ elevation, has always been regarded as the finest on the Tenuta for growing Sangiovese. The Montesodi Riserva appears a dense but luminous ruby red. The nose has concentrated essences of wild blackberry, blueberry, India ink, and roasted espresso, lifted by notes of pungent balsam and eucalyptus; smooth, supple tannins are already well-integrated, and add to the warm, velvet mouthfeel. A judicious alcohol and crisp acidity are in mutual balance. Pleasant hints of vanilla and espresso coffee enrich a clean-edged, lean finish. It is a rich, intense wine of remarkable aromas. Serve this beauty with roast or grilled lamb, game birds (pheasant) or pan-fried beef.
