2009 Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano
We can’t get enough of today’s prestigious Carrara Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which is one of the leading Italian wines that have put Tuscany, central Italy, on the world map. Its name derives from the picturesque hill town of Montepulciano, south-east of Siena.
This tiny appellation is centuries old and dates back to the Etruscans and earlier. In it’s prime during the 15th century, it was a favorite among the local Sienese aristocracy, and in the 16th century it was revered by Pope Paul III, who spoke of the wine’s excellent qualities. The terroir in the area around the village of Montepulciano is very unique and well suited to the Sangiovese Grosso grape, producing wines of depth, structure and complexity.
Beautifully balanced and rich, this bright Italian wine expresses notes of soft plum and fresh violets. A true delight to the senses, we strongly recommend you order today and receive this traditional Italian wine in time for the upcoming holidays!
