From the bottle:
"Remole, "Reh-moe-leh" is a Frescobaldi wine sourced from vineyards in central Tuscany ideal for the production of this region's most traditional wines. The extraordinary environment and microclimate of Tuscany are the key of the production of wine with a unique character and drinkability. Remole is a remarkably versatile wine that pairs beautifully with a wide range of cuisine: from Oriental traditions to classic Mediterranean dishes featuring grains and meat, such as cured meats and sausages, barbecued or boiled meats and vegetables.
Here at The Reverse Wine Snob we're suckers for a good Italian wine and Tuscany has a ton of them. In fact, we could literally spend years just focusing on wines from Tuscany and still leave much unsaid. This is one of the most renowned wine regions in the world producing a surprising variation of wines. In other words, Tuscany is not just about Sangiovese, but the Sangiovese is very good and so that's what we have here today! (With a little Cabernet Sauvignon mixed in for good measure.)
The 2010 Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Remole Toscana begins with loads of fruit -- plum, blackberry and raspberry predominantly with licorice and black pepper highlights. The wine tastes juicy! There's just a whole lot of sweet and juicy berry fruit in this easy to drink wine. We're talking blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, cranberry...you get the idea. Soft tannins and a dry fruity finish with good length round things out. A great choice for pizza night, just invite enough friends to finish the bottle off as it didn't fare so well on day 2. Don't let that stop you from trying this one though, especially the fruit lovers!
