Comments

 Vino Nobile is the second most prestigious appellation in Tuscany right after Brunello di Montalcino. As a slang it is also identify as the "Baby Brunello" because it is made with the same grape "Sangiovese Grosso" (that in Montepulciano takes the name of PRUGNOLO GENTILE) and deliver the same complexity and power in a more approachable style. It is a very big and elegant wine suitable for long ageing and perfect companion for grilled red meat and juicy medium rare stakes !

To produce a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano it needs a minimum alcoholic content of 13% and a minimum ageing of two years in oak barrels. After three years of ageing it can be qualify as a “Riserva”.
