2006 Sono Montenidoli is a vintage release to support Montenidoli's Sergio Il Patriarca Onlus non-profit foundation.
Winemaking Notes: The finest bunches of Sangiovese are chosen from Montenidoli's vineyards for this wine. The grapes are manually harvested and vinified with a long maceration on the skins. The wine then matures for 18 months in barriques. It's bottled unfiltered to maintain its intensely powerful personality. This is Montenidoli's richest red wine, a classic expression of a native variety. The wine rests in bottle until release.
Food Pairings: Its fullness and structure make it perfect for special occasions. Pair the wine 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.
About the Name: It's called Sono Montenidoli because it represents the spirit of the land and the hills overlooking San Gimignano facing Chianti Classico. I am what I am. I am Montenidoli.
