Fattoria del Cerro, with its 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards recorded in the register, is the largest private estate producing Vino Nobile. The spaciousness and the different exposition of the vineyards allow selecting the best grapes to make high quality wines. Prugnolo Gentile, the grape behind Nobile di Montepulciano, is the clone of Sangiovese, typical of this area, and which, over the course of the centuries, has adapted itself to local growing conditions. Vino Nobile is produced in three different versions: the regular wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G., the Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G., and the single vineyard selection Vino Nobile di Montepulciano "Antica Chiusina" D.O.C.G..

Medium-deep ruby. Pleasantly soft aromas of ripe red cherry, vanilla and smoked meat. Fat and supple on entry, then more vibrant in the middle as lively acids kick in and lighten up the pretty raspberry, plum and underbrush flavors. The finish is smooth and of moderate length.

Good blackberry and chocolate character, with hints of vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Very well done. Best after 2005.

Soft and velvety, with berry, chocolate and light vanilla character. Full and round. Drink now.

The 2005 Vino Nobile di Montpulciano is an accessible, straightforward wine with dark red fruit blossoms on the palate with an attractive inner juiciness. Made in a somewhat restrained style, it is best enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011. This is a gorgeous set of wines from Fattoria del Cerro and oenologist Lorenzo Landi.

The 2006 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an explosive wine packed with dark fruit. This medium to full-bodied red offers notable intensity and a long, harmonious finish. Sweet notes of tobacco and minerals linger on the polished finish. It is a terrific effort in this vintage, and an equally compelling value. The Vino Nobile is 90% Prugnolo Gentile, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Mammolo that spent 18 months in a combination of cask (70%) and smaller French oak barrels (30%). Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. Milk, berry and plum aromas lead to a medium body, with good fruit and a delicate citrus finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases made. -JS
