 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Apr 2014)
In this structured wine, aromas recall meat juices, black plum, bell pepper and cooking spices. The dense palate delivers fleshy black cherry and black currant accented by black pepper, clove and espresso. Still young, it has brooding tannins that need time to tame. Drink 2016-2023.

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.
