Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2016
70% Sangiovese (Prognolo Gentile), 30% Canaiolo and other authorized grapes
A mix of fruity and savory, this red reveals as much eucalyptus, bay leaf, thyme and tobacco as black cherry, blackberry and licorice. Concentrated and solidly built, lingering with an aftertaste of dark fruit and Mediterranean herbs, plus iron and tobacco. Drink now through 2042. 15,000 cases made, 7,800 cases imported.
