HALF BOTTLES: RED

Red - VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, Valdipiatta. Tuscany (Half Bottle)

2013 VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, Valdipiatta. Tuscany, Italy (Half)

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Montepulciano is a beautiful hilltop town south of Siena, but has long been in the shadow (from a wine perspective) of its distant neighbour Montalcino. The style is usually similar - certainly a bigger, richer wine than most Chianti
Grape Variety: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 5% Mammolo
Producer: Valdipiatta was founded in 1973 and purchased at the end of the 1980s by the Caporali family. Consultant oenologist is Eric Boissenot who also works for Lafite, Latour, Margaux and Palmer. The property comprises 40 hectares, of which 30 are under vine
Cellar Potential: 2015-2020
Food Match: Red meat of course, like most Tuscan reds. Very good recently with sausages and lentils
Old Bridge Rating: Vibrant and rich - a modern style of Vino Nobile, without being over-oaked or over-extracted. This looks good value next to any Brunello di Montalcino
