Wine Maker Notes
The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva of Fattoria del Cerro has an intense and concentrated ruby red colour. The ample aroma is characterized by hints of wild black cherry, violet and tones of mild spices. Its flavour is full, persistent and with a noticeable tannic component. The acidity content, that pervades its body, complements its strong overall structure of this wine. It is served in ample wine glasses, at 18°C at least. It can be served with roast red meats and aged cheese.
Fattoria del Cerro, with its 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards recorded in the register, is the largest private estate producing Vino Nobile. The spaciousness and the different exposition of the vineyards allow selecting the best grapes to make high quality wines. Prugnolo Gentile, the grape behind Nobile di Montepulciano, is the clone of Sangiovese, typical of this area, and which, over the course of the centuries, has adapted itself to local growing conditions. Vino Nobile is produced in three different versions: the regular wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G., the Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G., and the single vineyard selection Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ”Antica Chiusina” D.O.C.G..
