Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Rosso di Montepulciano displays vivid ruby red color in the glass and intense aromas of wild black cherry, violet and a slight vanilla undertone. Well-balanced and elegant tannins which integrate into the red fruit flavors. A younger Vino Nobile with the potential to age.

Pairs well with appetizers and first course dishes with meat sauces, stuffed pasta or casserole dishes and grilled red meats.

About Fattoria del Cerro:

Fattoria del Cerro is not only Montepulciano's largest private estate, it is also the one with the finest and most complete line of wines, fruit of years of work on the part of its directors, first Guido Guardigli and now Guido Sodano, and most of all to the inspired winemaking of Lorenzo Landi, who first revealed his formidable talent with their wines.
