Winemaker's Notes:

The most classic and the most famous of wines from Fattoria del Cerro. It has a vivid ruby red color and good concentration. Intense fragrant aroma with evident fruity notes among which wild black cherry,violet and vanilla. Full balanced flavor with noticeable but discreet tannic component.

Can be served with appetizing first courses with meat and mushroom sauces,grilled meats and roasted white meats and medium aged cheese.

"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,

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.
