VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO:
Therefore, Nobile is a bargain compared with its Tuscan neighbors, while still rivaling them in quality. A young Nobile is delicious, easy to drink, and refreshing, vibrant with aromas of ripe red fruit and slight spice.
The vibrant palate is all about balance and finesse, offering strawberry, red cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper balanced by bright acidity and polished tannins. If you love extreme elegance, this is for you.
Nobile was the first DOCG wine to appear on the Italian market. A favorite amongst influential Italian Kings, Popes, and Presidents, the wine has been celebrated throughout history as the wine of the nobles (hence its name). Even our own third President and fine wines expert, Thomas Jefferson, fell under the spell of Vino Nobile, stating, “For the present I confine myself to the physical want of some good Montepulciano…this being a very favorite wine and habit having rendered the light and high flavored wines of a necessary of life with me. It was most superlatively good.”
