K&L Notes

From the producer: "The Ricci family was born in 1150; Palazzo Ricci, one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano, was commissioned by Cardinal Giovanni Ricci in 1534 by the best architect of the moment, the Sienese Baldassarre Peruzzi and finished being constructed in 1562. The Cantina De’Ricci was part of the project for the Palace, however it was built on a previous medieval structure; in fact documents have been found in which it states it was built according to the ancient rules of the statutes of Montepulciano of 1337. In 1959 at the behest of the Marquis Giulio Ricci, the Cellar changed its name, and until today it was known as the ‘Cantina Redi’."

Our Italian buyer opened this bottle for me after I casually inquired about it and as we talked about the aromas, I started to get the picture as to why he brought this in (Serendipitously I might add). The nose is full of ripe red berries and dark plum with a bit of umami and spice in the back. The palate is medium body with bigger tannins on the back end towards the finish and is laden with raspberry and black cherries. This is great drinking on its own or pair it with your favorite pizza, porcini mushroom risotto, or any stewed meat; outstanding for its price point.
