After years of continual experimentation, we identified the best potential for quality in the vineyards of "Asinone".The Nobile "Asinone" is the highest expression of our production and the most complete synthesis of tradition and oenological innovation.
Produced from Sangiovese grapes, this wine has an unmistakable style and distinct character, but it is, nevertheless, capable of holding its own in relation to international tastes.
The single-vineyard 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone reveals beguiling aromatics. With air, layers of vibrant dark fruit, tar, smoke, graphite and licorice develop in the glass as this beautifully-balanced wine struts its stuff. Ideally a few years of bottle age are warranted, but this wine is so appealing at the moment that readers might have a hard time waiting. I am confident that in a few years this wine will be even better. The wine’s finesse, tannins and texture are clearly those of a first-class wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.
This is a bold, meaty wine with thick aromas of smoke, cured meat, mesquite wood, ripe blueberry and sweet cherry. It makes a grand impression on both the nose and the tongue because of its exceptional density, its supple texture and its impressive length.
