Tasting notes
Color: brilliant ruby red with a tendency to garnet. Bouquet: ethereal, extraordinarily elegant with hints of violet and wood. Flavor: dry, harmonic, fruity and velvety, with an elegant texture and long finish.

 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Sep 2015)
Aromas of dried black-skinned fruit, cedar, charred earth and ground pepper lead the nose. The palate offers dried black cherry, ripe blackberry, clove, allspice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2018.
 Wine Spectator 93 points (Oct 15 2015)
Enticing aromas of sweet cherry, leather, spice and underbrush stay focused on the palate as this harmonious red unfolds. The hint of oak on the finish suggests this still has time to evolve. Offers a mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2024. 11,600 cases made. -BS Rated #26 in Wine Spectator’s 2015 Top 100

Wine maker notes
Named for the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, the term nobile has historical roots in the original practice of reserving this wine exclusively for the aristocratic families of the area. Carpineto’s Vino Nobile is produced from fruit harvested exclusively from their Montepulciano Estate. The ethereal bouquet shows elegant notes of violet and toasted oak nuances. Bold fruit flavors envelope the palate with a velvety, elegant texture and long finish, it is dry and full in style. This Riserva benefits from extensive aging in a combination of Slavonian and French oak barrels for 18-24 months, followed by 12 months in bottle.

Technical notes
90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo

Food pairing
aged cheeses and game, especially wild boar.
