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.
