La Bandita e Lunadoro

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2016

Classic old school. Nose has macerated cherry, sweet spice, old barrel scents, loamy gravel. In the mouth it’s full and a little on the leaner side, with rich dark cherry and leather, and lots of savory minerals on the finish. Tannins soft, pretty good acidity. Right over the middle of the plate. — 15 days ago

Vigna Asinone Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2016

This wine keeps on evolving in a spectacular way. Pure Sangiovese where elegance is taking over from the previous very present tannins and acidity. — a month ago

Valle Reale

Vigneto di Popoli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015

This wine is medium dark with aromas of black cherry, cassis and blackberry wafting up from the glass. There is also a bit of leather, tobacco and pencil lead. The palate offers cherry, licorice and baking spices, along with a nice acidity and medium-firm tannins. The sip is really enjoyable, but it pairs well with a steak or anything Bolognese. — 16 days ago

9.4

Deep nose of dark berry fruits, dark cherry fruits and chunky earth and wet soil. Somewhat refined which is unusual for MDA. Palate is super concentrated and sleek. Good purity and concentration. Terrific refinement. Velvety tannins and superb finesse. Lovely tiny berry fruit intensity and length. Like if one of the polished traditional Rhone guys (Durand, Tunnel) made MDA. Lovely stuff and lots of upside. Gets more rustic and charming while retaining its sleek fruit. Stoney tannins. Very ripe. Terrific. — 2 days ago

Mulinvecchio Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2015

Purchased at the winery and a great example of a vino nobile. Bright and full of acid, so a perfect compliment to food. — 25 days ago
