Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano Wine

Vino Nobile de Montepulciano is a wine produced in or around the town of Montepulciano in Tuscany, Italy. It is understandably often confused with wines from Abruzzo and other parts of Italy produced from the Montepulciano grape that is not cultivated anywhere near the town. However, the Vino Nobile is produced from Sangiovese. From the town. A good general rule of thumb to avoid this confusion is if you see Montepulciano at the end of a wine name, it’s the place. In the beginning, that’s the grape. 

 
That said, this Sangiovese wine is considered one of the finest in Tuscany. Evidence that wine was enjoyed in Montepulciano dates as far back as the Etruscan period, several centuries BC. An Etruscan chalice was discovered there in 1868, depicting Fluflun, the Etruscan god of wine, playing a drinking game with a maenad (female worshipper). Other written evidence exists such as an account of the Gauls’ fascination with the local wine. There is also a document dated in 1350 Read more »

    Snoothrank:

    I had this wine with a braised lamb shank and it paired very nicely. As other reviewers have noted this is a substantial wine with a lot of body and complexity. It worked well with the richness of the meat, I'm not sure I would like to drink it on its own without food. Read More
