Nobile di Montepulciano  D.O.C.G. 2016

2016 was a kind of “old school” vintage: a regular season, slightly late maturation and a season finale with some rain. The result is a more elegant Sangiovese than ever which enhances its mineral and spicy tones.

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
