Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet red

Aroma: The varietal fruity notes of the Sangiovese and the Merlot complement each other very well in an inviting, ample and intense bouquet: Plums and cherries, blue- and black berries, raspberries and cranberries. The long ageing period in oak leaves pleasant ethereal and slightly balsamic sensations in the wine and the finish is characterised by scents of nutmeg, rosemary and tobacco.

Tasting profile: The full-bodied, imponent structure of this Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva gives an idea of its impressive ageing potential. Even though it is still very young, however, this wine is not agressive on the palate. The tannins are pleasantly sweet and the fruity notes give a very nice, round quality to the taste. The aromatic persistance is very long and characterised by sensations of plain chocolate, mature fruit and pot pourri.

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...
