Tasting Notes: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva
Refinement and elegance for a unique sip that’s one of a kind, that is how we characterize our Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva, a wine that represents one of the highest expressions of a variety of Sangiovese called Prugnolo Gentile. This is a grape from an enchanting wine area nestled in the hills south of Siena.The history of the village of Montepulciano is closely connected to its viticulture, filled with historical, cultural and gastronomic references that have their roots well over a thousand years old.
The Nobile di Montepulciano is produced in our cellars exclusively in the Riserva version. It ages for about two to three years in large oval Slavonian oak barrels. It is then aged in its bottle at controlled temperature and humidity for a period about 6 to 8 months. These extended periods of aging result in an elegant, fine, persistent and structured wine. Here is a look at Nobile di Montepulciano wine.
This light, brilliant ruby red color is the result of the great anthocyanin concentration of Sangiovese, which slightly tends to garnet. The wine moves sinuously in the glass, caressing it with its impressive consistency.
Our Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva releases great persistence on the nose. The characteristic aromas of Sangiovese, such as violets and violets, are joined by spicy secondary aromas and toasted tertiary aromas such as cocoa, vanilla and coffee.
