SALCHETO ROSSO DI MONTEPULCIANO

Producer/Winery: Salcheto
Region: Montepulciano, Italy
Grape Varietal: Sangiovese
ABV: 13.5%
Size: 750ml

A powerhouse wine, Salcheto’s Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, made with organic grapes, hits the palate with an exotic array of smoke, incense, scorched earth, iron and black fruit. This is far from an easygoing wine, so plan on cellaring the Vino Nobile for another few years.  Ferrous, savory notes add complexity to the intense finish.
