The Vino Nobile by Salcheto from the Italian wine region DOCG Nobile di Montepulciano in Tuscany is a varietal, complex and very elegant red wine.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a sparkling garnet red with cherry-red highlights. The expressive bouquet reveals intense aromas of black cherries, ripe plums and blackcurrant - accompanied by spices and a fine hint of oak. On the palate, this Italian red wine surprises with a wonderful vitality that harmonizes perfectly with the soft, juicy texture. The aromas of the nose are also reflected and accompanied by fine-grained tannins. The final comes with a pleasant length and nuances of plum compote.
Vinification of the Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
The Prugnolo Gentile grape variety - also known as Sangiovese - grows on vineyards in Montepulciano. The grapes are carefully picked by hand and immediately brought to the wine cellar of Salcheto. There, the mash is first fermented in stainless steel tanks. When the fermentation process is complete, 70% of this red wine is aged in vats (large wooden barrels) and 30% in tonneaux for 18 months. Finally, this wine rounds off harmoniously on the bottle for 6 months before the Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano leaves the winery.
Food recommendation for the Vino Nobile Salcheto Montepulciano
