Winemaker's Notes

Varietals: Prugnolo Gentile, Canaiolo Nero, Mammolino

Vino Nobile is garnet red in color; its bouquet is delicate and intense, with a slight scent of violet; the taste is dry with a hint of tannin. This wine is ideal with roast and grilled meat, game and mature cheeses.

"The 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (mostly Prugnolo Gentile with some Canaiolo and Mammolino) presents a richer, riper expression of black cherries, licorice and smoke, in a linear, understated style, with notable purity and outstanding balance. Although delicious today, it is also quite fresh and primary. Readers who enjoy a more developed wine will want to give this Vino Nobile another year or two of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016."

The best thing I can say about this wine is its nice, buttery feel in the mouth and its pretty color. Aroma was indistinguishable, taste was light and had no complexity. So we let it breathe a while. Little improvement. Then we left it in the decanter 24 hours. About the same result. My experience is limited but in 6 years, this is the most mediocre wine at this price that I've tried. My husband's experience is far more extensive and his taste is far more educated than mine and he agrees with me. Final decision: Very drinkable but definitely mundane.

Learn About Avignonesi Map ItMap It

In 1309 pope Clement V transferred the papal residence from Rome to Avignon, France. In 1377, when pope Gregory XI moved the papal residence back to Rome, some noble families of Avignon left France to follow him. It was at that time, in Italy, that one of those families became known as Avignonesi - probably to simplify an otherwise difficult, foreign name. Soon the Avignonesi...

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...
