External Reviews for Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Rèmole
Aromas of ripe plum and lemon peel follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.
An 85/15 blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon; no oak; 12.5% alcohol. Light, bright red. Aromas of red berries, pipe tobacco and underbrush. Tangy and penetrating but not hard in the mouth, with fresh acids framing the red fruit and tar flavors. Finishes bright and simple, with a lingering sweetness.
Spicy and fruity up front, but a bit shy on the nose. A mouthful of plum and pie cherry creates a tight mouthfeel. Slightly piquant and snappy, but ripe and tasty. Will be helped along by the right food.
With 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, this lively wine is a kind of younger brother of a Super Tuscan. Ripe red cherry fruit highlights this appealing drink-me-now quaff.
Smooth, soft and generous, this clean wine has fragrant plum and spice aromas and flavors. Has a pleasant intensity and concentration of fruits to match a casual meal of spaghetti and meatballs.
Medium ruby-colored, with an attractive cherry candied nose of moderate intensity, this medium bodied wine displays good underlying acidity, unobstructive alcohol, and a clean, fresh finish.
