Marchesi Frescobaldi
The Ripe al Convento vineyard, lying at 350-450 metres’ elevation, yields a wine that is the fruit of painstaking quality selection, first in the vineyard and then on sorting tables in the cellar, where every berry is examined. This Brunello Riserva exhibits a remarkably distinctive personality and significant cellarability.
Intense ruby-red with barely perceptible highlights that are almost garnet in tonality.
The nose is characterised by notes of blackberry that quickly leave in their place intense and pleasant sensations of ground hazelnuts, rhubarb, and Cuban cigar; then spicy notes emerge of black pepper, cardamom and walnut, followed by fresh notes of thyme, tea leaves and juniper. Hints of underbrush and iodine.
Entry on the palate is imperious, characterised by a dense and elegant structure well supported by generous, full body. The finish is merkedly long and balanced.
