2015 Marchesi Frescobaldi Remole Toscana
The history of the Frescobaldi family begins around the year 1000, during the same time period as the birth of the banking industry of Medieval Florence. The Frescobaldis quickly became the absolute protagonists of political and economic life earning them the right to the title ‘treasurers to the English Crown’. They inscribed their name in the history of Florence commissioning grand public and architectural works such as the Santa Trinità bridge on the river Arno, and the construction of the Church of Santo Spirito designed by Brunelleschi.
The family’s start in wine production is documented at the beginning of the year 1300 at the historic estate of Tenuta di Castiglioni in Val di Pesa, southwest of Florence. From the beginning, the family has demanded that their wines be of quality and that they reflect the uniqueness of their terroirs, and by the beginning of the 1400s great Renaissance artists such as Donatello and Michelozzo Michelozzi had become faithful clients. A century later the Frescobaldi wines were served at the tables of the Papal Court and the English Court of Henry the Eighth. Today, the Frescobaldi’s are still leading the Italian wine industry in innovation and growth.
The latest wine introductions for the family is the Ornellaia estate in Bolgheri which began in 2005 and the modern cellars of Ammiraglia in Maremma. Villa di Remole, in the heart of Tuscany, is the cradle of 700 years of history and tradition of the Frescobaldi family. Remole is an intense wine, soft and fruity, that will captivate and delight you.
A popular blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this reasonably low alcohol (12.5%) is a complete surprise on the palate.
Remole 2015 has a deep purple red color, brilliant and intense. The nose reveals decisive scents of redcurrant and blackberry, followed by spicy and balsamic hints of black pepper and eucalyptus. Its main characteristic is its pleasantness, combining elegance and nice persistence.
