Style: Dry Red Vintage: 2015 Varietal: Sangiovese
Appellation: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Region: Tuscany County: Italy
A blend of 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Canaiolo Nero. The vineyards, ranging from 15-40 years old, are planted at a south/southwest exposure in the Bossona and Martiena Crus. Fermentation occurs naturally and lasts for 18-22 days. The wine is then aged in large oak casks for 18-24 months and cellared in the bottle for an additional 6 months before release.
“The 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is fabulous. Bold and rich in its expression of fruit - this is 2015 after all, the Nobile retains a gorgeous sense of translucence and detail for such a naturally intense wine. Sage, tobacco and menthol notes add nuance, but the Nobile is a wine to drink and enjoy for its sheer deliciousness. I loved it." - Vinous, 93 pts
