La Braccesca Rosso di Montepulciano 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Antinori first bought land on the Tenuta Braccesca estate in 1990, situated in southeast Tuscany, between the towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. The former is known for the Sangiovese that ripens into rich Vino Nobile, while the latter is home to Italy’s best Syrah.The Braccesca vineyards cover 237 hectares: 151 between Cortona and Montepulciano, 280-300 metres above sea level, with a clay-silt soil; and 78 hectares in the classic heartland of Vino Nobile, on a stony red clay soil. A lifted, vibrant aroma of vanilla and ripe fruit, with firm structure and good length, showing the extra richness of Vino Nobile over Chianti.

Nice Vino Nobile to pair with, however, expected more for the price. $19.95 VW

[Pepolino: veal meatballs with red sauce, pasta with brown sauce] Plums on the nose, high acidity, soft tannins; characteristics that I associate more with Barbera than Sangiovese. Better with the red than the brown sauce. Had previous vintages and liked it; but should have known when listed as 2001 on the wine list and they brought the 2002; KAB hated it. Would not recommend drinking alone; will not purchase again.
