The biggest party weekend of the summer is upon us and we want you to have plenty of delicious and affordable red wine to serve at your own party or to take to someone else’s. The 2014 Frescobaldi Remole is an exuberant Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet. It is fresh and fun and playful with an abundance of bright red berry fruit and a pleasant little pop of spice. When the weather forecast calls for highs in the upper 90’s, this is the sort of red wine that we just love to drink. The nose offers up an engaging perfume of rose petals, crushed raspberries, cedar, and mint. On the palate, you’ll find that the 2014 Remole is full of raspberry, blackberry, and ripe red cherry flavors all complemented by delicate hints of thyme, sun-baked earth, and juicy pomegranate seeds. This yummy, medium bodied red will be perfect with barbecued chicken, salmon, and burgers but this weekend we’re selling it for such a low price that you could even use it as the base for a really great summertime Sangria. Whatever you do, don’t pass this one up. This is a silly good little bottle of dry Italian Red and, especially at the case price, it’s a remarkable value!
On to the Tasting Notes:I’m not going to bore you too much by waxing poetic about a six dollar red. That said, you ought to know that Frescobaldi is one of the most respected wineries in all of Tuscany. They boast an exceptional team of vineyard managers and winemakers who are dedicated to producing outstanding wines at various pricepoints. That fact becomes evident as soon as you open a bottle of their 2014 Remole. This delicious young red was built in a fun and playful style that still manages to stay true to its Old World heritage by delivering an abundance of character without becoming overripe or sweet. It was built to be a great Tuscan cocktail wine and also to pair up with lighter dishes and casual gatherings. I like it a lot as I sit here writing this review and I think I’m going to like it even more once I sit down to dinner, a whole chicken smoked over cherry wood on the Big Green Egg.
Food Pairing:I love to buy a whole side of salmon and then rub it with salt, pepper, and basil pesto before tossing it into the oven with the broiler set on high. It cooks up to a nice medium rare in about 7 minutes so it’s a great, easy protein to add to the table on nights when time is of the essence. I think it would be a fantastic pairing for a young and juicy Tuscan red like the 2014 Remole.
