A luminous, lively ruby announces Montesodi 2010. Complex fruit notes are the first to appear on the nose, including morello cherry, dried plum, and blueberry, followed immediately by sweet violets, fresh hay, and carob, all enlivened by a crisp note of slaty mineral, while the background boasts stylish notes of clove, black liquorice and nutmeg; closing this aromatic treasure are pungent hints of toasted almond and pipe tobacco. A lively crispness in the mouth and the ample body impress immediately, as do the tannins, noticeable, self-assertive, and with the slight rasp classic to the Sangiovese in this growing area. The finish is near endless.
Roast or grilled lamb, game birds (pheasant), pan-fried beef.
