Top Vino Nobile Producers

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the least known and understood (in the US, at least) of the "big 3" Tuscan Sangiovese-based wines (the other two are Chianti and Brunello). It's a shame really - Vino Nobile offers fuller body and more complexity than many Chiantis, yet is approachable far younger than Brunello. They're a bit pricier than many Chiantis (almost always $20+), but worth exploring if you can. Anything from the producers below should work well.
