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. It yields a rich, intense wine of remarkable aromas.
GRAPE VARIETY 100% Sangiovese
TASTING NOTES Montesodi is an intense and brilliant ruby-red. The nose is fruity with blackberry and blueberry. Floral notes of violet and spicy notes of rhubarb and black pepper are accompanied by hints of leather and Cuban cigar. Fresh, mentholated with fresh notes of Eucalyptus. The palate has a good acidity and a tight tannin texture typical if its DNA. The lengthy finale is dominated by mineral notes of graphite and clear sensations of liquorice which underline its bold character.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS Roast or grilled lamb, game birds (pheasant), pan-fried beef.
