MONTENIDOLI Toscana IGT Rosso


Montenidoli Chianti Colli Senesi
{short description of image}

Sangiovese GrossoThe new Chianti has reached Montenidoli too, a wine that omits the white grapes in favor of the reds, to obtain a Chianti IGT of greater body and longer life. Macerations that are more or less long, depending upon the vintage, and then straight into barriques to age, after which the wine is bottled.

By choice, the grape varietal is the traditional Sangiovese. The Sangiovese grapes of Montenidoli macerate and ferment in glass-lined cement tanks. It refines in French barrels and it is bottled after one year to preserve its vibrant youth. A bright, brilliant red, with a fresh clean nose.
In the mouth it is lively and exuberant with a tough, long aftertaste.

Food-Wine Pairings: a perfect wine for meats, from poultry to beef to pork, whether grilled, roasted, or cooked atop the stove. Also excellent with lamb, duck, pheasant or ham and salami.
