Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2015

This wine is made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero grapes from Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG in Tuscany. It aged over two years in Slavonian and French oak barrels and at least one year in the bottle prior to release.

It is a medium ruby wine with a secondary garnet hue.

It is elegant, dry, and balanced, and offers medium intensity of tart cherry, ripe blackberry, and plum, along with violet, licorice, clove, toast, cedar, nutmeg, tobacco, and wet earth notes.

The structure is solid with medium(+) acidity, medium alcohol, medium(+) tannins, and a medium(+) finish. The flavors and aromas are concentrated.

This wine may be consumed now and has potential for further aging. It also has a lot of food-pairing potential. We’re pairing it with a traditional spaghetti pasta dish this evening.

Carpineto, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Reserva. Vintage 2015. ABV 13.5%.

Riserva Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rubesco Sangiovese Blend 2008

A blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo from Torgiano in Umbria, delivering a mid-dense palate of dark fruit, cherries and plum. Although 2008, still very much alive, fresh and smooth! — a month ago

Pian del Ciampolo Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2003

Found this tucked away at one of my local shops. First time sampling the lowest end offering from Montevertine. IGT is misleading given Manetti family’s story. Anyways, wine is a banger! Cherry and currant with tea and some herbs. Lithe and refined. Perfect with Loafers pizza (or anything really). I love Sangiovese. — a month ago

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Prugnolo Gentile Blend 2017

Dark ruby-purple color; nose is unusual with small red and black berries and baking spices mixed with tire rubber in a fairly pleasing fashion; full-bodied and tannic, long satisfying finish where dark fruits and tar notes dominate. No food or snacks served yet so this is great solo for now until the cheese plate gets here... — 2 months ago
