Dei Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2018
Subtle but enticing perfume to the nose, offering cherry-based aromas that are tinged with bright, tangy spice. Full-bodied with a super intense bead of perfectly placed fruit and tannin. There’s slight firmness to the tannin at the end, so wait a year for perfect integration. Beautiful quality here. Not overly complex, but such good winemaking. Best from 2023.
The perfumed and elegant 2018 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wafts up with a vivid display of crushed raspberry and spice box complemented by mentholated herbs of hints of smoke. There are depths of silky texture here and an opulent wave of floral-laced wild berries and sweet inner spice. Notes of sour citrus, lavender, round tannins and residual acids mingle through the lightly structured finale. This is so elegant.
Made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero, this soft, full-bodied red has aromas of new leather, ripe plum and dark spice. On the enveloping, accessible palate, velvety tannins accompany fleshy black cherry, coconut and coffee bean before a bitter almond close.
