James Suckling Review
Rated 93
Attractive ripe fruit with citrus undertones and dried berry character. Full-bodied yet balanced and delicate. Firm tannins and tangy acidity. Drink or hold.

VinoUS Media Review
Rated 92
The estate's 2012 Montesodi (Sangiovese) is a bit darker and richer than the 2012 Chianti Rufina Riserva Nipozzano Vecchie Viti, but it is also quite tasty. Here the flavor profile leans towards the darker end of the Sangiovese spectrum. Sweet black cherries, mint, cloves and new leather meld together in a voluptuous, fleshy Sangiovese to drink now and over the next decade. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Tasting Notes
Montesodi is an intense and brilliant ruby-red. The nose is fruity with blackberry and blueberry. Floral notes of violet and spicy notes of rhubarb and black pepper are accompanied by hints of leather and Cuban cigar. Fresh, mentholated with fresh notes of Eucalyptus. The palate has a good acidity and a tight tannin texture typical if its DNA. The lengthy finale is dominated by mineral notes of graphite and clear sensations of liquorice which underline its bold character.

Alcohol 14.5%
