Tasting Notes

 This Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is made with 100% organically grown Sangiovese, Prungolo Gentile (a local clone of Sangiovese) and Canaiolo. It is deep red in color, full-bodied with intense aromas of berries, cinnamon, pepper and vanilla. Tannins are relevant but smooth and not overpowering. A complex wine that is perfect for meditation, best with roasted meat and grilled steak Fiorentina.
