Remole is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Toscana IGT wine appelation. Produced from fruit found throughout the Frescobaldi estates and other Tuscan areas, this red wine is meant to be enjoyed young.
Tasting Notes – 2008 Vintage
Remole 2008 greets the eye with a deep, brilliant purple hue. The dense bouquet offers complex fruit aromas, such as blackberry, raspberry, cherry, and redcurrant, lifted with fragrant hints of spice and black pepper. The well-balanced palate is velvety smooth, very warm and rich, with a refreshing crispness. The long-lingering finish nicely mirrors the fruit on the nose.
Food Pairing Suggestions
A classic example of a wine for all dishes, on all occasions. Enjoy it for example with charcuterie that is not too spicy, or with full-flavoured pasta dishes such as all?matriciana.

The 2008 spring will be remembered as the wettest of the last few decades, with temperatures dipping well below average.
Rain and wind in June, right during the bloom period, led to less than optimal fruit set; the clusters showed smaller-sized grapes. In July and August, however, generous sunlight and warm temperatures in Tuscany partially remedied the slow development.
The summer months, including September, were sunny and hot, and sufficient reserves of water in the soil helped ensure ideal ripeness levels across all grape varieties, with Sangiovese in the lead.
