The flagship estate wine, 100% Sangiovese, this is an elemental beast of a wine, a wine to make with a full and serious meal. I imagine that the 2010 has to be benchmark good, as the 2010 vintage in general in Tuscany is of the finest of the past two decades. In value for the money, this is off the charts to my taste, likely even more so in 2010……Many people identify this as one of the most serious sleeper values in all of Tuscany. Fwiw…..
In her words: “The finest bunches of Sangiovese from Montenidoli’s vineyards: after macerating in tank, it ages for 12 months in barriques and for at least three years in bottle. Its power and tightness reveals it youth, and it has a long future ahead of it.”
Food pairings: “Its fullness and structure make it perfect for special occasions. With game, braised dishes and red meats. It is a cure for all depressions of body and spirit.”
