RISERVA Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2010 TOSCANA

RISERVA Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2010
Vinified through the ancient “Governo Toscano” method with only
Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile grapes slightly over-ripe by drying, it ages
for 24 months in barrels, large and small, and then refines at least 12
months in glass.
Son of a year full of excitement as was 2010, this bottle is the first release of “Nobile
Riserva” at Salcheto. In search of an important wine made from Sangiovese Prugnolo
Gentile able to express soft freshness, we chose the ancient “Governo Toscano”: grapes
of the same crop are put aside, which will be reshuffled to the freshly racked wine once
slightly wilted in late November. With a small percentage of Colorino grapes, this Riserva
expresses strength and freshness with incredibly mature and smooth tannins.
