The recent Food Network South Beach Food and Wine Festival was a showcase for some of the world's greatest wines and an opportunity for members of the public to taste t he newest wines to come to their favorite wine shop this spring and summer. Among the most exciting new releases is a real crowd-pleaser from Tuscany, Remole 2016 from the historic Frescobaldi estate. Embodying 700 years of winemaking history from Villa di Remole in the heart of Tuscany, the wine embodies everything that is historically expected of a great Italian wine, but with a modern twist. Lambert Frescobaldi, who now leads the revered company, was personally on hand in South Beach to introduce the wine. It is a testament to his skill as a winemaker and his marketing savvy as well.
The wine is the perfect answer to those who say they don't enjoy red wine, because Remole is both intense in body and flavor, yet extremely smooth, soft and fruity. It goes with just about anything, making it perfect for outdoor barbecues and garden parties with various cold meats and cheeses and imaginative spring salads. It’s also serious enough to come indoors for a fine dinner of a hearty steak or roast duck.
Remove was created in ideal growing conditions. The grapes, native Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, were allowed to ferment under cool temperatures in stainless steel in order to preserve the intense fruit flavors of cars red fruits such as blackberries and dark cherries, along with hits of spicy black pepper, balsamic and eucalyptus. The wine was aged four months in stainless steel and then allow to mellow for another two months in the bottle. The result is a red wine that simply goes down easy while filling your moth with delicious flavors. Remove is a real find and at just under ten dollars a bottle, sure to be at the top of your shopping list for months to come. In any language the name Remole translates into the word delightful!
