The Montesodi by Marchesi Frescobaldi is the increasingly successful evolution of the first Chianti Rufina Cru: born in 1974, its name is inspired by the stony nature of the plot that feeds the Sangiovese grapes, near the famous Castello Nipozzano.
Elegant and lively, the Montesodi wine shows a brilliant ruby red in the glass; scents of cherry blossom, violet and hibiscus are followed by notes of small crunchy fruits such as cassis and blackberry. Liquorice and pepper make the spicy finish an intriguing invitation to taste. The latter reveals an excellent minerality balanced by the right sensations of graphite. The sip is fresh and intense, with silky, ripe tannins. Definitely a Tuscan red wine that knows how to seduce and conquer the senses.
In the cellar, the process that brings to light Montesodi Marchesi Frescobaldi involves ten days of fermentation at controlled temperature, followed by maceration and malolactic fermentation. Before the end of the annual cycle, Montesodi begins aging in Austrian and French oak barrels for 18 months. The final touches to its organoleptic profile take place in the bottle, where it stays for a few months, just long enough to obtain the best characteristics.
