Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2017 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany / Montepulciano
Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

At 300 meters in elevation, the soil at Torcalvano is rich in clay, and slightly skeletal. High vine density, low average yields and later October harvests combine to produce grapes with concentration, complexity and a mature, balanced ripeness. The wine was fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and macerated on the skins for at least 15 days to give it a rich color. It was matured in traditional large Slavonian oak casks for 20 months and at least another 6 months in bottle before release.

harvest note

This year's growing season was less uniform, and the grape skins were thinner and more pliable than last year's. The wines are more aromatic and deeper in color, but less structured.

tasting note

Shows aromas and flavors of granite, violet and cherry, with high acidity leading to a long finish.
