Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The new blend as of the 2003 Vintage is approx. 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo/Merlot, 5% Colorino. The resulting Nobile is structured and complex, with a lovely nose of dried herbs, leather, earth, vanillin and strawberry jam and plenty of plummy, flavorful fruit on a palate made supple and appealing by the silky tannins and black cherry finish. Longevity is in the 8-year range and more.
"The 2008 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows fabulous intensity in its dark fruit. It is a beautifully balanced Vino Nobile that offers superb depth wedded to a powerful sense of structure that should allow the wine to drink well for a number of years. The Vino Nobile is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo aged in a combination of cask and barrel. This is a fabulous effort. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
