Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2020

The 2020 of Vino Nobile vintage was simply as complicated as its time: late frosts, humid spring, summer with peaks of extreme heat and hail, with a rainy season finale. But stubbornness and experience, together with nature’s magic, have brought us wines that are nevertheless profound and round, although turned to the subtle side of wine.

Dusty dried flowers, crushed rocks, lavender and red currants can all be found as the 2019 Nobile di Montepulciano opens in the glass. This floods the palate with silky textural waves contrasted by tart wild berry fruits and a salty sensation brought on by pronounced minerality toward the close. The result is both savory and sweet and full of zesty tension, as the 2019 finishes with a bitter cherry pit twang.
