Food Pairings for Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Rèmole
Frescobaldi is a Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great Tuscan wines. This producer now has 5,000 hectares of estate properties, over 1,000 hectares of estate vineyards, nine estates in Tuscany, and a quality distribution network in over 65 countries worldwide. The Costa di Nugola estate lies a few kilometres from Livorno on the Mediterranean coast and covers 127 hectares, of which 92 are under vine. Cypresses dot the vineyards, which were re-planted to high densities in 2002, utilising the most up-to-date viticultural technologies. The soils are of various types, with a predominating reddish sand of marine origin which is iron-rich known as Sabbie di Nugola. The warm, dry climate, and particularly the beneficial marine breezes combine to enable Costa Di Nugola to produce wines of unequalled quality, appealingly complex with distinctive aromas of Mediterranean macchia, or scrubland. The "Caletta" rosé, made from the Merlot grape, has a full bouquet with hints of tropical fruit. The wine is well-balanced, rich and full-bodied with a tangy acidity that beautifully complements the velvet-smooth fruit.
