Contucci Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A smoky, slightly gamy style of wine with blackberry jam on toast notes, and hints of leather and roasted chestnut. In the mouth this is very polished and fine with fully developed floral and herbal top notes over the slightly rustic and wild red fruit tones. The tannins are brisk and crisp giving this a slightly muscular feel. A fine food wine, with a nice flourish of bitter cherry and herbs on the moderately long finish. 89pts

In 1434 Contuccio was as a great honour, made a citizen of Florence; in 1542 Giulio Cesare and in 1586 Francesco were Standard Bearers. Ottaviano became the commander of Cosimo's army and died gloriously on 5th December 1594. In the 17th century it is worth remembering Giulio, doctor of civil and church rights at Pisa University; Arcangiolo commander of the army of the Grand Duke Ferdinando II; Gregorio, who, besides being Standard Bearer in 1612, was also "Alfiere delle Corazze" of Christina of Lorena. In 1700 the jesuit Contuccio was rector of the Study of Rethoric and responsable for the Kircheriano Museum in Rome. Read less
