2016 Rocca Di Montegrossi Toscana IGT "Ridolfo", Tuscany, Italy MAGNUM - 1.5L
ABOUT THIS WINE
On the intuition of Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi, IGT Ridolfo is born from a union of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Pugnitello (50%). Internationality and tradition are perfectly integrated while offering a new key by which to interpret the splendid terroir of Monti in Chianti.
The Cabernet Sauvignon expresses its role at its best, made of refined fruit notes (blackberry, dried plum) and a well-integrated botanical component (eucalyptus). To these accompany the wilder fruit notes (sour cherries) of Pugnitello, and then the spicy notes in perfect balance (pepper, licorice) and light balsam.
A wine of great impression and very complex, with nice acidity.
Wine of character and a strong personality…hard to forget!
