85% Sangiovese (aka Prugnolo Gentile), 15% Colorino, Canaiolo & Merlot
A gorgeous Sangiovese from the Tuscan town of Montepulciano (not to be confused with wines from the Montepulciano grape used in Abruzzo). Predominantly made from the local Sangiovese strain called Prugnolo Gentile, this superb wine has a fleshiness and almost opulent expression that is simply delicious now, but has the structure to age gracefully.
92/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"This wine should be hitting the market now. The 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a truly generous Tuscan red with a bright and cherry-driven bouquet. Some 250,000 bottles were produced, and this is the average for this wine. The blend is 85% Sangiovese with 15% Canaiolo and Merlot. Blending is executed in cement tanks, and the oak influences are downplayed. This is a deep, plush, soft and rich expression overall. Drink 2018 – 2026."
92/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast (2015 Vintage)
"Fragrant woodland berry, blue flower and cake spice aromas mingle with a balsamic menthol note. The concentrated but almost weightless palate offers juicy raspberry, fleshy black cherry, espresso and star anise alongside polished supple tannins."
