Tenuta Il Faggeto Pietranera Riserva Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano D.O.C.G 2004 750ml

Tenuta Il Faggeto Pietranera Riserva Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano D.O.C.G

95 Points Wine Spectator: The purity in this red is striking, offering raspberry, peony, mineral and spice aromas and flavors, which unfold seamlessly, lending an impression of weightlessness, yet there's intensity and structure. The terrific aftertaste offers sweet fruit and mineral notes, with tannins that will allow this to develop further. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases made.

Four wines for four horses: this is the symbol of the farm, surrounded by beeches and oaks. The estate stretches on the hills of Montepulciano, which slope down gently towards Lake Trasimeno, among olive trees and vineyards. The wines of the farms meet the horses which are the main feature of the image of the Faggeto Estate: they recall the colts that in the past used to roam freely, arriving to gallop on the yellow slab overlooking the high hill.

In this clayey, muddy land with shallow layers of tufa, characterized by stratifications of yellow stone (or Stone of the Devil according to legend), the vineyards of the property rise and extend for around 10 hectares, 7 of which are registered for the production of Vino Nobile. The cordon spur method of cultivation is used with seasonal work of the land to help improve the quality of the final product. Finally the temperate mild microclimate, characterized by a winter that tends to be rigid, a hot summer and with the rain concentrated in autumn and spring all playing a part in the final role for the excellent maturation of the bunches.

Blend of Sangiovese, Colorino and Mammolo that doses out fresh blackberry, mineral, licorice, spicy cedar and a touch of sweet cassis to round out most of the characteristics. Full-bodied with a gorgeous refined texture and a long powerful finish that goes on and on.
