Vino Nobile di Montepulciano for short-term aging


The 2011 Fattoria Del Cerro, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a wine that is just entering its first drinking window.  The 2011 vintage was hot and some of that warmth comes across on the nose.  In the mouth this flavorful, filling wine has plenty of watering acidity so it does not get bogged down.  I recommend that you grab a few bottles to lay down over the short term.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2011 Fattoria Del Cerro, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – $18
Imported by Vias Imports.  This wine is 95% Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) with 5% Colorino and Mammolo that was aged in 80% Slavonian oak casks and 20% in French oak barrels.  Alcohol 14%.  The flavors of dried grapes and black stones come with red accents and watering acidity.  The notes of stones carry towards the middle where there is a little, bitter hint and chalky tannins.  This mouthfilling wine is undeniably flavorful.  It could stand a few more years in the cellar as it oscillates between smooth and structured drinking.  *** 2017 – 2025.
