Different than Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is based on the Prugnolo Gentile variety, more commonly known as Sangiovese. The 2012 Vallo Reale includes a portion of Canaiolo, a traditional blending grape. A generous taste profile of ripe red cherry, plum, sweet herbs, leather, and mineral notes is supported by vibrant acidity and firm tannins, making for a full-bodied, food-friendly Tuscan red. With origins dating back to the 17th century, this noble wine is an essential part of Italian viniculture, and a steal for the price!

Historical Notes
The origin of Vino Nobile goes back to the 17th century, when it was defined "The King of Tuscan Wines"(Francesco Redi, Bacco in Toscana). Doubtlessly drunk and appreciated by aristocrats and gentlemen, (hence its name) this wine has transcended its fame to modern times. Today, it is considered one of the most prestigious red Italian wines.

Winemaking Notes
This Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced and refined in the heart of the production area, between Val D’Orcia and Valdichiana, from vineyards situated in a countryside rich in monuments, villas and country homes. The minimum ageing period is 24 months in traditional Tuscan casks. Thanks to its character, the Vino Nobile has a great ageing potential.
