Tart berry and red cherry, menthol, med body, med plus alcohol, biting tannin (med plus tannin), bright with good acidity, clean with chalky minerality, med finish. Lacking the depths I’m looking for this region but overall a good wine.

375 ml. Always a great value, dusty cherry fruit, violet and herbal spice, leather and earth. Out performs the price as usual, but found the ABV a touch high and taxing on the palate. Have had varied experiences w/ the 2011's in Tuscany but the spike in perceivable alcohol seems common. Pickiness aside, great bottle from a great producer of undervalued wine; sign me up any day.

This is a terrific noble wine showing sweet red cherries, integrated oak and vanilla spice, tobacco and black licorice.

Цвет вишнёвый, зрелый. В аромате варенье из чёрных ягод и слив, морённое дерево, мокко. Пряно (сушенный тимьян, розмарин), сладковато, с щедрой порцией дуба и лёгкими тонами окисления. Среднетелое, во вкусе сушенные чёрные ягоды с сахаром, лавр, грубая кожа, глина. Сушащие танины, средний уровень кислотности. Долгое тёплое послевкусие с лёгкой горчинкой. Большое, начинающее идти на спад вино. 16,5/20

Agree with all the comments....drinks above it's price-point, fruit forward with a solid backbone of oak. Inline tannins. My only complaint would be that I personally prefer a truer old world style for Vino Nobile. Particularly from such a rooted producer.

Punching above its weight class. A $25 wine that drinks like a $40 :) tannin, cherry, it should come with every pizza.
