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..

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an accessible, straightforward wine with perfumed dark red fruit that 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.Wine Tasting NotesIt has a vivid ruby red color and good concentration. Intense fragrant aroma with evident fruity notes among which wild black cherry, violet and vanilla. Full balanced flavor with noticeable but discreet tannic component. Can be served with appetizing first courses with meat and mushroom sauces, grilled meats and roasted white meats and medium aged cheese.
