Tuscany, Italy

Last September we featured the 2018 vintage only to be unable to fill all of your orders.
We made this point to the Importer and, true to her word,
she honored our recent pricing for the stunning 2019 vintage.

This significant Tuscan village — not to be confused with the red grape of the same name widely grown grape in Abruzzo and the Marche regions — was home to one of the first four Italian DOCGs granted in 1980.
Based on the Sangiovese grape (here called Prugnolo Gentile),
the village’s prized wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ranks stylistically in between Chianti Classico,
for its finesse, and Brunello di Montalcino for its power.

92 Points! James Suckling

"A savory and pretty nuanced Vino Nobile here showing orange zest, plums, grapefruit, mineral and fine spices.
A twist of mineral salinity on the palate with firm, tense tannins and a pure, pithy finish.
From biodynamically grown grapes. Vegan.
Drink in the next five years."

91 Points! Vinous
"The 2019 Nobile di Montepulciano is a total pleasure on the nose.
Sweet spice complements bright raspberry and cherry aromas.
This envelopes the palate with silky textures balanced by juicy acidity as rose-tinged red berries cascade across the palate.
It leaves a gentle coating of fine tannins while maintaining a lovely energy as hard red candy hints fade."


Our Thoughts on this wine.....

Certified organic and following the principles of biodynamic viticulture, t
his lovely red opens with enticing scents of camphor, pressed rose petal, forest floor and blackberry. Smooth and savory, the linear, elegant palate delivers juicy red berry, pomegranate,
coffee bean and orange zest alongside extremely refined tannins.
Surprisingly fresh acidity and well balanced, on the finish ripe cherry and plum returns.
