Castello di Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva Montesodi 1.50L 2006      
Sku: 1564377*

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.

Tasting notes
Eye - Medium to deep purple colour with a hint of brick red at the rim. Nose - Really ripe on the nose with classic Sangiovese aromas of black cherry stone, blackberry, pepper, leather and above all a herbal, oregano edge. Also some new oak from the aging. Fine yet complex. Palate - The palate is supple and smooth on the attack, velvety and fruity with redcurrant jam and strawberry. It then fills out in the mid-palate and finishes with all the herbal elegance of top Sangiovese overlain with a touch of new oak. Creamy and long

 Free Shipping points
The 2006 Chianti Rufina Riserva Vigneto Montesodi offers up dark cherries, licorice, herbs, cinnamon and cloves in a full-bodied, rich style. An underlying streak of greenness seems out of character in this vintage. The Montesodi is 100% Sangiovese that spent 18 months in French oak.

Food pairing
Roast partridge with cabbage, beef stew with carrots, duck with cherry, lasagne, spaghetti carbonarra.
