ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of Italy's oldest wineries, with a history dating to the 1300s. The family has included medieval knights, bankers, lawyers and patrons of the arts. The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates--and roughly 2,500 acres--in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the late 19th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazine's Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy's finest wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Rèmole Rosso boasts a bright and intense violet-red color. Fruity aromas, such as blackcurrant, raspberry and black cherry slowly give way to extremely delicate spicy notes. On the palate, the warm note is balanced out wonderfully by a fresh vivacity. It is a pleasant wine that marries elegance and balance with great softness.
90 Points - Ian Blackburn:
A terrific value, I would much rather drink this wine than a simple Chianti - this wine has wonderful fruit purity, above average quality marks, the kiss of Cabernet works nicely to amplify and balance the Chianti elements (hard tannins, screaming acidity) in a way that brings pleasure and joy to this ready to drink and delicious offering. Color 13.5/15, Aroma 22.5/25, Body 22/25 32/35 = 90 Points.
