75cl * Vegan & Organic * 14.0% ABV * Tuscany, Italy
Richer than Chianti, yet providing better value than Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of Italy’s hidden treasures. This reveals a certain southern, sunny ripeness in its fresh berries and cream character - not dissimilar to Raspberry Ripple - that cannot fail to be attractive. Nevertheless, Sangiovese’s classic supporting combination of fresh acidity and tannin can also be felt.
"A bright, pretty Vino Nobile showing rose petals, tulips and orange zest. Taut tannins draw out fine layers of firm tannins, coating the vibrant fruit in sparkling acidity. Medium-bodied and medium chewy. Crunchy on the finish. Drink now or hold. 93 points"
