Fattoria del Cerro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigneto Antica Chiusina Italie Saiagricola S.p.a 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review The estates 2003 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigneto Antica Chiusina, the single-vineyard selection, is a blend of 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Colorino aged 18 months in French oak barrels. This beautifully plump Vino Nobile captures the warmth of the vintage in its expressive, opulent personality and generous sweet, dark fruit. Despite its ripeness, it also offers superb freshness as well as balance which will allow it to drink well over the next decade. It is a terrific effort from Fattoria del Cerro. Anticipated maturity: 2007 - 2018. Wine Tasting Notes It has an intense and concentrated, vivid ruby red color. The aroma is typical with hints of violet, wild black cherry, wild berries and touches of spices with a slight vanilla finish. It has a full, enveloping, fine and elegant flavor, with an excellent persistence. Can be served with roasted red meats, red and white grilled meats and seasoned cheeses.

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..
