Tenuta Trerose Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2007
Sangiovese from Tuscany, Italy
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
The color is ruby red. The bouquet is rich and complex, with plum and blackberry aromas, mineral and tobacco notes. The flavor is full-bodied, elegant, great balance and lingering finish.
"Red with a hint of brick at the rim. Perfumed, rather high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, blueberry, cherry, minerals, violet and camphor. Sweet on entry, with fully ripe acidity and fine-grained tannins supporting the rich red fruit flavors. Lingers long with superripe red cherry. Much better than the comparatively simple 2006 Nobile."

I served this at my sister's 50th birthday party and it was a hit. Perfect with the Italian food being served. I will buy a case now.
Earthy & Spicy
Like Brunello Vino Nobile takes sangiovese to another level. This 2007 did not disappoint. I have re-ordered.
Solid performing inexpensive sangiovese.
Earthy & Spicy
Was good but still have not acquired a taste for Sangiovese. Italian Wines still on the back shelve for my taste.
Raspberry on the nose, lots of tannins, some of the flavors were hard to detect. Would definitely drink with a meal.
This will be a good wine, but needs some time. You can taste the 14% alcohol and the initial sips create a bit of a *pucker* - but I gave it three stars and think it will mellow. It has gotten better as it's been sitting in my glass - so DECANT for sure.
Smells of great aromas....but the taste is very tart! Seems as though this needs to breathe a while before drinking.
Big & Bold
Very FULL bodied and definitely high in alcohol *wink*wink*. I think it needs a bit more time in the bottle. If you insist on drinking in now - Decant, Decant, Decant! : )

Learn About Sangiovese
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...
