A 2017 Vino Nobile that shows tension and focus with blackberry, blueberry and hazelnut undertones. It’s full-bodied with lovely, fine and chewy tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now or hold.

The 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers an easy and classic rendition from a warm vintage. The bouquet shows wild berry aromas with rose, tilled earth and some toasted almond. This Vino Nobile spreads evenly over the palate with mid-weight intensity, good freshness and plenty of fruit purity to power a long and silky finish.

A rich version, this red displays cherry, black currant, iron and tobacco notes, with a hint of wild herb flavor. This is balanced, with a smoky cast to the lingering aftertaste. Fine length. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. 3,500 cases imported.

Aromas of red berry, blue flower and spice lead the nose. Savory and linear, the taut palate offers ripe plum, blackberry and star anise before finishing on a note of grilled sage. Drink through 2025.

This wine's flavors of ripe black cherry tinged with notes of orange peel and menthol offer immediate appeal, the flavors underlined by firm, ferrous tannins that give it a sturdy framework.
