Valdipiatta Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigne d'Alfiero 2009

External Review:

Even deeper and more saturated in color than the 2000 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, the 2000 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigna d'Alfiero, with plum, and raspberry fruit together with licorice, wild fennel, and tobacco, offers a nose of excellent complexity, and the sumptuous palate, concentrated and sensual, is layered and textured, complex and deep with sweet fruit and fused oak notes. Sneakily ready, it will unquestionably drink well until 2015.

Giulio Caporali, Valdipiatta’s owner and founder, purchased the estate in the late 1980s to pursue his dream of creating a great wine. With a strong, innovative approach and profound respect for the land, Giulio has been able to elevate Valdipiatta to one of the top producers in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano appellation. “It is my Shangri-La”, is how Giulio describes Valdipiatta. In 2002, he turned over management of the estate and winery to his daughter Miriam. Today, he enjoys living at Valdipiatta, where he has found an ideal environment to conduct research and pursue his interests in history and literature. A passionate scholar, Giulio translated from Latin, the charter of the town Montepulciano, a manuscript fro 1337 AD. Most recently, he published an essay on the Etruscan origins of the name of Montepulciano. Miriam Caporali is Valdipiatta’s owner and general manager. A young entrepreneur and a Business Administrator graduate from the University of Rome, Miriam decided to dedicate herself to the family business after extensive experience in consulting. From 1997 to 2002, Miriam worked closely at her father’s side at Valdipiatta, learning all the various aspects of winery management. She also visited Bordeaux, where she took an advanced class in wine tasting and winemaking. Sharing her father’s passion for Montepulciano’s terroir and its ancient winemaking tradition, she decided to dedicate herself completely to the family business, taking over its management in 2002. Today, she serves as general manager in charge of sales and public relations. Read less

The spectacular 1999 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigne drsquo;Alfiero boasts a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a compelling perfume of blackberries, currants, new saddle leather, and espresso. Dense and full-bodied, with great fruit, elegance, and succulence/suppleness, this beauty can be drunk now and over the next 10ndash;12 years.

Lovely blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy and powerful, with a long finish. Big red. Best from 2003 through 2007.
