About the Wine: The finest bunches of Sangiovese are chosen from Montenidoli's vineyards. After macerating in tank, it ages for 24 months in used barriques and for at least three years in bottle. Its power and tightness reveals its youth. It has a long future ahead of it.
It's called 'Sono Montenidol' because it represents the spirit of the land, the hills overlooking San Gimignano and facing Chianti Classico: I am what I am.
In 1979 Krista Klauke called Sono Montenidoli "one of the Paladins of the Italian Wine Renaissance," in Alles Uber Wein. In 1988 Horst Dhom selected 60 great Italian reds, including Sono Montenidoli, for Frankfurter Allgemeine. In 1999 Der Feinschmecker ranked Sono Montenidoli among the hundred best wines in the world.
Food Pairings: Its fullness and structure make it perfect for special occasions. Pair with the more complex meat dishes, including furred game such as hare, boar, mountain goat and venison. It goes well with aged and piquant cheeses including pecorino di fossa, Parmigiano, Gorgonzola, and Stilton. Try desserts made from chocolate or dried fruit. It is a cure for all depressions of body and spirit.
