2014 Frescobaldi Remolé, Tuscany
Price: $8.99

The Frescobaldi name is famous for making top-notch Tuscan wines and has been associated with wine production for over 700 years.  With multiple estates situated throughout the hills of Tuscany, the family strives to showcase the finest qualities of each region while respecting the history and style of the area.  With Remole, we find a superb value from fruit grown at their Chianti estate in the northeast region of the zone, Chianti Rufina.  Rufina is a relatively small zone, and Frescobaldi has the finest vineyards in the area.  This traditional blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon mirrors the blend of many in Chianti, with greater approachability and finesse.  Pretty aromas of sour cherry, dust and dried sage lead the charge, while a combination of vibrant wild berry fruit flavors linger on the distinct finish.
