Frescobaldi has over 700 years of winemaking history - that's impressive, even for old world (European) producers.
This wine is consistently fabulous and the 2012 is no different. Expect a ruby red wine with notes of sweet cherry, ouzo, vanilla, pipe tobacco, rose petals, baking spices atop saddle leather. Smooth on the entry with a lovely, juicy yet supple character and flavours of red plums, cherry, spice and tobacco with licorice. Delicious and wonderfully priced with a fine textural component.
Pair: Mediterranean dishes, cured or grilled meats and tomato based sauces.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
