Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Giramonte 2013
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
TOP 100 WINES OF 2017 #83 - This is a lifted style of red with a concentration of dark fruits and cedar and some spices, too. Full body, layered and flavorful. I appreciate its flamboyance and juiciness. Drink now or hold..December/2017
The 2013 Giramonte, Frescobaldi’s Merlot/Sangiovese blend, is terrific. A rush of raspberry jam, super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, sweet spice, rose petal and blood orange makes a strong opening statement. Dense, unctuous and bold in personality, the 2013 has a mid-weight sense of structure that keeps things from going too far over the top..April/2018
A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Sangiovese, this opens with aromas of ripe black currant, cocoa and a hint of crushed aromatic herb. The concentrated palate delivers blackberry jam, espresso and toasted hazelnut alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2023.
