About

"The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most virile, ripe 2013 Vino Nobiles I tasted. A host of black cherry, smoke, tobacco, earthiness and licorice notes give the 2013 its distinctive baritone feel. That intensity comes through in the wine deep, intense palate feel. The 2013 is a serious Vino Nobile that needs to be paired with similarly hearty foods."

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." - Importer

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
