Nobile Vecchie Viti del Salco

Nobile di Montepulciano 2016

2016 grew up as a pretty intriguing vintage and was born in a kind of “old school” season. A quiet regular climatic, slightly late maturation and a finale with some rain. The result is a Sangiovese with a more elegant texture than ever which enhances its earthy and spicy tones.

“New leather, forest-berry and rose aromas shape the enticing nose on this radiant red along with a balsamic whiff of camphor. The firm, elegantly structured palate features ripe Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and crushed mint framed in tightly wound, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It’s linear and still youthfully austere, with great aging potential. Drink 2023–2036.”

Salco

Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G 2015

2015 is undoubtedly one of the most impressive vintage of its decade. It was marked by a strong thermal stress in August, which has particularly influenced acidity levels. The result is a wine “eat and drink all in one”, fleshy and soft, to be enjoyed perhaps in a shorter time horizon.

Fragrant Purple flower, dark spice and black skinned berry aromas mix with new leather and pipe tobacco. It is both elegant, and enveloping, delivering ripe Marasca cherry cranberry licorice and hints of dried herbs alongside taut, velvety tannins. It closes on a note of coffee bean. Drink through 2027.

Nobile di Montepulciano  D.O.C.G. 2015

2015 proved to be a year with a balanced climate for the territory, characterized by an extremely hot month of August which has greatly calmed the acidities: the wines that came out are meaty and decidedly soft, basically “to eat and to drink

Made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino, this offers subtle aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, oak-driven spice and a balsamic whiff of eucalyptus. On the tense, structured palate, closegrained tannins accompany dried cherry, licorice, tobacco and an invigorating hint of menthol. Drink 2021–2027

Nobile

Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2017

2017 was more than ever an hot and dry year and its wines are full-bodied but soft. The alcoholic gradations are sustained but without lack of balance and drinkability also thanks to Salcheto’s pedoclimate, capable of providing freshness to the wines with its clay soils and the strong temperature ranges.

Salcheto checks a lot of boxes. The winery is powered by renewable energy, water waste is 100% recycled, there are no added sulphites during vinification and the entire production is certified organic and packaged in light weight bottles. Above all, the Nobile tastes delicious. It is clean and immediately appealing offering complex cedar, earth, tea and balsamic nuances atop forest fruit. Full-bodied and full of character, it is rich yet fresh and seductively textured with polished tannins. A great success for this challenging vintage. Drinking Window 2020 – 2030

Obvius Giallo Oro

Bianco di Toscana I.G.T. n.v.

Born in the white grape rows of the Poggio Piglia vineyard, gathered at the first rays of noble rot, it is fermented and aged in “tonneaux”. It is then completed as a “blend” of different vintages in a search for balance, drinkability and versatility: during a meal it combines with both sweet than savory and is equally comfortable as an aperitif or after dinner. All this is then made even more attractive by the use of “grapes only” in the process (no added sulfites, or anything else you can imagine).

Obvius Rosso

Rosso di Toscana I.G.T. 2018

Innovative thus so simple to understand, this wine is willing to explore new fields of taste, but in a modern cultural environment, where precision of scents, redox and volatile stability and the overall reliability of the wine over time are essential elements. The 2018 vintage showed out to be quite “classical”, having been relatively fresh and rainy, both in spring than summer; Its wines turn out to be pretty balanced and elegant.
