wonderful structured rufina, full of red fruit and acidity, great weight
Very nice elements of dark berries and vanilla with a medium body and a rich mouth feel. Tannins provide some structure and good acids keep it from feeling mushy. Less of the thin cherry common with Sangiovese, more of the brambly plum that reminds me of some Zins. We ordered this and a Super Tuscan at a group dinner and went back for 3 more of these!
Soft, feminine bouquet of fresh red fruits balanced by nicely integrated oak fragrances and delicate floral undertones. Quite smooth and attractive, a well balanced vino.
External Reviews for Marchesi de Frescobaldi Remole Toscana
A burly Rufina, offering dried dark fruits and chewy tannins, with an aftertaste of dark chocolate and mineral. Full and satisfying, with fresh acidity on the back palate. A go-to Chianti. Drink now. 121,000 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina 750ml
Offers plummy fruit, with hints of flowers, citrus and light chocolate. Medium-bodied, with a balanced and tasty palate, fine tannins and a clean finish. Structured. Best after 2009.
Many wineries in Chianti struggled with the damp conditions of the 2005 vintage, but Frescobaldi produced an outstanding bottling. The clay and limestone vineyards of Castello di Nipozzano, which are located around 1,000 feet above sea level, are well-drained, and meticulous vineyard management opened the vines to sunlight and reduced the risk of rot, allowing the Sangiovese to fully ripen. Small amounts of Malvasia, Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon add complexity. Frescobaldi produced a lot of this wine, so it should be easy to find.
Castello di Nipozzano covers more than 1,500 acres of land in the heart of the Chianti Rufina region, ranging in altitude from 820 to 1,312 feet. Its 593 acres of vines surround a fortress that was built in the 11th century. The 2007, a blend of 90 percent Sangiovese, with the remaining a mix of Malvasia, Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, maintains a high level of quality considering the large volume made.
Aromas of plum, tobacco and grilled meat. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate.
Very aromatic, offering bright blackberry and light vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with vibrant fruit, fine tannins and a clean, crisp, fruity finish. Best after 2008.
The 2005 Chianti Rufina Riserva is a soft, accessible, fruit-driven Chianti. It offers good length although the intensity drops off a little on the mid-palate. Ideally there might be a little more Sangiovese character. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2015.
