"The 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an accessible, straightforward wine with perfumed dark red fruit that blossoms on the palate with an attractive inner juiciness. Made in a somewhat restrained style, it is best enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011." 88 Points,
Deep ruby in color, nose of cherry, slightly vinegar. Powerful mouth feel but peters out on the finish. More cherries, slightly floral. Not as structured as 2004.
