Notes of tobacco, licorice, cedar and red fruit on a medium bodied frame with notable detail and nuance in expression makes this a wonderfully superb wine. Laced with the hints of violets, plums and cherries this wine is extraordinarily rich, soft and well balanced. It is both lively and rich, with a peppery, spicy energy on the finish. Voluptuous, bold and robust. This wine walks a fine line between balanced elegance and super ripeness. A must with roasted wild game and meats; it is the perfect wine for rich cheeses and foods.
Fanetti Vino Nobile Reserva Montpulciano
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano was much appreciated by the poet and wine enthusiast Redi who said of it “Of all the wines it is the king”. The wine was well known in medieval times and was the favorite of the Farnese Pope Paolo III who obtained it direct from Montepulciano to stock his cellars. After many years the wine lost its notoriety and the centuries old production was almost abandoned. It was only at the end of the last century that local farmers recommenced production.
