    Item no. 90998

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Varietals: Prugnolo Gentile, Canaiolo Nero, Mammolino

    Vino Nobile is garnet red in color; its bouquet is delicate and intense, with a slight scent of violet; the taste is dry with a hint of tannin. This wine is ideal with roast and grilled meat, game and mature cheeses.

    "The 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (mostly Prugnolo Gentile with some Canaiolo and Mammolino) presents a richer, riper expression of black cherries, licorice and smoke, in a linear, understated style, with notable purity and outstanding balance. Although delicious today, it is also quite fresh and primary. Readers who enjoy a more developed wine will want to give this Vino Nobile another year or two of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016."

    The best thing I can say about this wine is its nice, buttery feel in the mouth and its pretty color. Aroma was indistinguishable, taste was light and had no complexity. So we let it breathe a while. Little improvement. Then we left it in the decanter 24 hours. About the same result. My experience is limited but in 6 years, this is the most mediocre wine at this price that I've tried. My husband's experience is far more extensive and his taste is far more educated than mine and he agrees with me. Final decision: Very drinkable but definitely mundane.
