2016 Valdipiatta Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (750ml)

Sangiovese from Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy


Made with Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo Nero, this has enticing aromas of wild berry, fragrant purple flower, exotic spice and a whiff of new leather. It's bright and smooth, offering juicy wild cherry, ripe strawberry and baking spice while taut fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity lend balance. Drink 2020–2028.

Shows an appealing earthiness, with a spicy sandalwood element that adds sweetness and tempers the firm tannins. Black cherry, plum and underbrush notes round out the flavor spectrum, revealing a cigar box aftertaste. Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero. Best from 2021 through 2033. 4,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
