Wine Maker Notes
This single vineyard Vino Nobile hails from Carpineto’s Montepulciano Estate in only the finest vintages. An intense bouquet of black fruit defines the Sant’ Enrico parcel. Plum notes are interlaced with nutty and peppery notes and hints of vanilla rendered from extensive oak aging - 12 months in new French and American oak barrels and 4 years in bottle. It is full bodied with structured tannins and a long, persistent finish.
best served with roasts and grilled meats, especially “fiorentina-style” T-Bone steak.
