The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano by Tenuta La Braccesca impresses with its intense ruby red colour. Notes of red currant and blackberry, violet and vanilla notes and spicy aromas characterize the bouquet. On the palate, full, round and sweet tannins, with intense berry flavors and elegant spice, dense and structured, very elegant, soft and balanced. The finale is long, with a fine mineral note in the long reverberation.
Vinification of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano of La Braccesca
For this classic Vino Nobile, 90% Sangiovese grosso, also called Prugnolo gentile in this area, and 10% Merlot are vinified. The Sangiovese gives the wines elegance and aromas, the Merlot freshness, good drinkability and aroma. The grape harvest for the Sangiovese grapes takes place at the beginning of October, the Merlot ripens a little earlier. After manual harvesting, the grapes are macerated for about ten days, then the wine is placed in oak barrels of different sizes in which malolactic fermentation takes place, followed by ageing for 12 months. After bottling, the Vino Nobile matures for another year on the bottle before being sold.
