Vittorio Innocenti Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Vittorio Innocenti Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

€29.95
 
Ruby red in colour tending towards garnet with age. It is a dense, spicy wine that opens up slowly to reveal layers of dark cherry, plum, Christmas spice and tea notes. It finishes dry and slightly tannic with a delicate scent of violets. Still youthful, this needs plenty of aeration to show its best.

Description

The estate lies between Montepulciano and Montefollonico and consists of about 32 hectares of which 12 are specialised vineyards, situated between 330 and 350 metres above sea level on medium-textured clay soils of Pliocene origin. The cellar buildings, dating back to end of the 13th century, are in the small, well-preserved medieval town of Montefollonico. The oldest document referring to the wine of Montepulciano dates back to 789: the cleric Arnipert offered the church of San Silvestro or San Salvatore in Lanciniano, on Mt. Amiata, a
portion of land with vineyards on it inside the castle of Policiano. The owner, Vittorio Innocenti, who gave up teaching philosophy many years ago to dedicate all his time to the estate and the cellars, is helped by his wife Maria Rosa, theatre historian, his son Tommaso, who is currently finishing a course of study enabling him to take over the management of the estate, and his brother Mario, responsible for the care of the vineyards.
