Nobile di Montepulciano Docg 2010 – Avignonesi

Nobile di Montepulciano 2010

#58 on the TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR Wine Spectator

This Nobile has lots of fresh, mature fruit, typical to Sangiovese; balance, structure and acidity that will permit this wine to age in time, and distinctive balsamic notes, a trademark of the 2010 vintage, which give character to the aroma profile.

Grapes  Sangiovese

Ageing   Ageing in oak for 18 months, 80% in barriques, 20% in big barrels

Refinement in bottles Minimum 6 months

Alcohol % 13.5%

Serving temperature 18°C

“The 2010 vintage has grapes from 2 of our vineyard properties, Le Capezzine and I Poggetti. The 2010 growing season was longer than average, due to a cool spring and a warm, but rather rainy summer, which turned into a perfect picking season with hot, dry weather in September and October, leaving the Sangiovese grapes plenty of time to achieve an enviable balance and elegance. “

    This round version is laced with black cherry and raspberry fruit, showing hints of cocoa and spice. Firm tannins lend support, making this well-balanced overall, with a lingering finish of warm chocolate cake. Drink now through 2022.
