Fattoria del Cerro - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016
Fattoria del Cerro - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016 (88 TSW)
3 glasses Gambero Rosso.
Here in the south of Limburg (the Netherlands) the carnival days have started. Are you also celebrating?
Fattoria del Cerro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016 is made from 90% Sangiovese Grosso and 10% Nammolo.
The yield in the vineyards is deliberately kept very low. In addition, only the best grapes are selected in the cellar to guarantee quality. The traditional maceration at a controlled temperature and regular pumping characterize the wine. The 18-month-old ripe takes place in large oak barrels.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a vivid ruby red color with garnet rim.
On the medium+ nose aromas of black cherries, blackberries and plums with hints of violets, vanilla and spices.
On the palate dry, medium acidity and medium tannins. Nicely balanced and little smoky flavours of dark fruits, barrique, chocolate and black pepper.
Nice medium+ aftertaste.
To pair with appetizers, cold cuts, first courses with meat and mushroom saues, grilled meat, pizza and pasta, focaccia and bistecca alla fiorentina (grilled steak) and medium aged cheese.
