Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Montepulciano|
A mix of fruity and savory, this red reveals as much euclayptus, 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. Best from 2023 through 2042. 15,000 cases made, 7,800 cases imported.
A medium-bodied, structured red with aromas and flavors of cloves, cedar and dried cherries. Hint of pine. Well integrated tannins. The oak spices blend in nicely. Drink or hold.
