Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"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

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

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

Product Description:

"From the Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile vineyards, one bottle per plant, it ferments in wood and ages in large and small oak barrels for 18 months to then refine at least 6 months in the bottle." - Distributor

About the Estate
"Salcheto is yet another Montepulciano estate that deserves more attention. The top wines are endowed with superb pedigree and depth. Organic farming and a goal of total sustainability in the winery are two of the guiding principles at Salcheto. At their best, the wines are deep, intense and highly expressive." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
