JS 94 / AG 93 pts
JS: Lots of orange peel to the ripe and beautiful cherries. It’s full bodied with chewy tannins and a flavourful finish. A gorgeous, intense wine. One of the best basic VNMs from here for a long time. Drink or hold.
AG: The 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano packs a serious punch, yet retains plenty of Sangiovese character. Wild red cherry, tobacco, cedar, mint, licorice and spice all burst from the glass. The combination of richness and vibrancy makes for a compelling Vino Nobile that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring
