Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG
90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo
The name was adopted from the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, where this wine was originally produced. The name “nobile” was given due to the fact that in the past its production was reserved exclusively for the aristocratic, noble families of the area.
Majority of the wine aged 24 months in a combination of previously-used Slavonian oak barrels, while the balance rested in French oak. followed by 10 months in bottle.
Tasting Notes: An ethereal bouquet of violets, cherries, and wood fills the nose. On the palate, it is dry, harmonious, and fruity with a velvety, elegant texture and a long finish.
Traditionally, this wine is paired with wild boar, but can accompany any game meat. Also great with aged cheeses. This is a cellar-worthy wine.
Wine Spectator – “Blackberry, plum, coffee, smoke, iron and tar flavors mingle with the pointed tannins in this distinctive red. Complex and long, if not quite knit together today. Best from 2021 through 2033.” (92 Pts)
