About

92

"Fleshy, seductive and super-expressive, the 2012 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers tons of pure pleasure in its radiant personality. Cherry jam, pomegranate, sweet spice, mint and rose petal all flesh out. The 2012 is succulent and forward yet also impeccably balanced throughout." Reviewed July 2015

91 Wine Spectator

" This alluring and harmonious red offers a mix of sweet spices and cherry and plum fruit, with a long finish. The tannins are still present, but this is ready to enjoy. Drink now through 2020. 600 cases imported." Reviewed March 2016

90 Wine Enthusiast

"A pure expression of Sangiovese, this delivers aromas and flavors of black cherry, dried plum, licorice, ground black pepper and hints of leather and tobacco. Solid tannins give it a firm structure. Drink 2017–2022." Reviewed September 2015
