The Wine

Torcalvano Nobile di Montepulciano is pure Sangiovese locally called Prugnolo Gentile. Within this historical appellation, Sangiovese tells of a predominantly loose soil and rich in marine clays which results in a wine with an intense ruby colour and strong aromas particularly suitable for long aging.

Tasting: The 2018 vintage reveals through the glass a powerful ruby red colour, hints of ripe fruit and leather on the nose, but also spiced and citrus notes. Powerful and full-bodied on the palate, this wine shows silky and fruity tannins on the finish.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole suggests to pair it with pork filled with rabbit, livers and Savoy cabbage with onion pie First vintage: 1997
Shelf life: up to 15 years
