This rosso has a fruity bouquet of plum and black berries, punctuated by orange peel and a whiff of espresso. The palate shows black fruit flavors accented by chocolate and coffee notes. This has a short finish but is soft and meant to be enjoyed young.

Wine maker notes
Younger than Vino Nobile, it has an intense and vivid ruby red colour and good concentration. The fruity aroma is intense and fine with notes of wild black cherry, violet and a slight vanilla undertone. The flavour is well balanced, elegant and it has a slight initial tannic note. Serve at 18C in medium sized wine glasses. Excellent if served with appetizers first course dishes with meat sauces, stuffed pasta or casserole dishes and grilled red meats.

Other text
Fattoria del Cerro, with its 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards recorded in the register, is the largest private estate producing Vino Nobile. The spaciousness and the different exposition of the vineyards allow selecting the best grapes to make high quality wines. Prugnolo Gentile, the grape behind Nobile di Montepulciano, is the clone of Sangiovese, typical of this area, and which, over the course of the centuries, has adapted itself to local growing conditions. Vino Nobile is produced in three different versions: the regular wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G., the Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G., and the single vineyard selection Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ”Antica Chiusina” D.O.C.G..
