La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016
An intense ruby red in color, the wine offers fruity aromas with violet and vanilla notes. On the palate, the wine is ripe, supple and balanced with tannins supported by a vein of acidity that brings out flavors of blackberry and cherry. The wine is persistent and mineral on the finish and aftertaste.
|Wine Advocate: 91|
|The 2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows large intensity with elegantly etched aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The wine steps forward with mid- to full-weight intensity and medium length. However, you get plenty of dark fruit and spice in between.|

|Aromas plum, blue flower a whiff of exotic spice shape the delicate, enticing nose. Tense and almost ethereal, the racy palate delivers Morello cherry, red currant, licorice and dried herb alongside vibrant acidity and fine-grained, dusty tannins. Drink 2021–2028.|
