  • Avignonesi. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Toscane Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Italië Rood Prugnolo Gentile Canaiolo Nero & Mammolo 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Butterscotch and black cherry on the nose with just a touch of herbs and a piercing violet top note. On the palate this is very fresh with great acids and unobtrusive tannins that are very soft but add volume in the mouth. The fruit has a muddy, earthy tone that adds nice depth and a touch of complexity to the pure fruit. 88pts Read More

  • Avignonesi. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Toscane Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Italië Rood Prugnolo Gentile Canaiolo Nero & Mammolo 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A lighter, dryer Sangiovese but certainly smooth and well balanced with its low tannins. The 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano presents hints of minerals, smoke and tobacco along with the traditional black cherry notes. Read More
