Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2012
Grapes: 90% Prugnolo Gentile, 10% Canaiolo
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.
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.
Colour: Ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing.
Bouquet: Characteristic bouquet, delicate with notes of violets and typical aromas of tobacco and leather.
