James Suckling:

"A rich and fruity red, with chocolate, berry and dried fruits on the nose and palate. Full and velvety, with soft tannins and a beautiful finish. A little dusty texture, but delicious. Drink now." (09/11)

Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2008 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows excellent juiciness in its red fruit. Sweet tobacco, flowers and spices appear later, rounding out the articulated, mid-weight finish. This feminine, delicate Vino Nobile impresses for its balance and harmony. It is a terrific effort from Folonari. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016." (08/11)

Product Description:

WINE:
"This is a classic Vino Nobile, made from 100% Sangiovese. The wine is matured for 20 months in oak, then 6 months in bottle before release. Aromas and flavors of minerals and cherry lead to a long finish. Ample acidity makes Vino Nobile versatile with food, especially with meats, poultry and game." -Importer

WINERY:
"At Tuscany's southwest edge, due south of Arezzo, lies the Montepulciano region, where Tenuta Torcalvano is located. At 300 meters in elevation, the soil at Tenuta Torcalvano is rich in clay. High vine density, low average yields and later October harvests combine to produce grapes with concentration, complexity and a mature, balanced ripeness. The wine is fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and undergoes maceration on the skins to give it a rich color. It is matured in traditional large oak casks and in bottle before release." -Importer
