Fanetti Vino Nobile Montepulciano Riserva 2017

Regular price $38.75 Sale

An Old School Tuscan red!! Estate grown and bottled

Vino Nobile is historic Sangiovese royalty. This was the very first DOCG certified appellation in all of Italy. Confusing to many folks, it is not made from the Montepulciano grape that dominates the reds of eastern Central Italy but is instead from the Tuscan village of Montepulciano. Sangiovese is the main player in most Tuscan wines, and Vino Nobile is no different, except they call their local variant "Prugnolo Gentile." Strictly traditional hand-harvesting, bunch by bunch, cask-aging in giant chestnut "botti" and wooden tanks, and declared only for Royalty, Vino Nobile maintains a well-earned royal mystique. Can be cellared for the next 15 to 20 years. If drinking now decant for at least 4 hours.
Serving Suggestion: Prime aged beef w/ black pepper & drizzled olive oil. Grilled ciabatta bread rubbed w/ garlic & topped w/ prosciutto & olive oil.
