Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Montesodi appears a dense but luminous ruby. Density too is notable on the nose, with concentrated essences of wild blackberry, blueberry, India ink, and roasted espresso, lifted by notes of pungent balsam and eucalyptus. Smooth, supple tannins are already well-integrated, and add to the warm, velvet mouthfeel. A judicious alcohol and crisp acidity are in mutual balance. Pleasant hints of vanilla and espresso coffee enrich a clean-edged, lean finish.
"This cru expression of Sangiovese was born in 1974 and offers beautifully plush and rich aromas of dark chocolate, cherry and opulent vanilla. The wine is very smooth, soft and long-lasting in the mouth. It’s a wonderful and very pleasurable wine."
"Opulent and generous, with loads of blueberry and toasty oak character. Full and velvety. Needs time. Best after 2011."
"Dark red. Sexy aromas of ripe red cherry, smoked meat, gunflint, dried herbs and toasty oak. Then firm and perfumed in the mouth, with rich, ripe flavors of red cherry, dark smoky plum, licorice and oak. The building tannins are chewy and assertive, and will need time to resolve fully. Finishes long, with an attractive floral quality. Cellar this for 3 years and enjoy it for another 15 after that. "

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more.
