Nobile di Montepulciano is an important red wine from Tuscany. The origins of this wine date back to the 1600s, before Chianti and Brunello. Salco is produced thanks to a clone of Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile that at each vintage reaches with ease a slight over ripeness. Prugnolo Gentile provides a mid-ground between the robustness of Brunello and the elegance of Chianti. After maturing 2 years in wood, it is refined up to 4 years in our cellar.
Nobile di Montepulciano Salco by Salcheto is brick red colour and shows delicious dried and ripe dark cherries on the nose, with a touch of prune and a ripe, sweet core. There is definite complexity with savoury aromas of earth, cedar, spices and a warming meatiness and leather. The palate mirrors this but shows great balances with the fruit, and the prunes and warm earth are particularly prominent. The ripe tannins provide great structure, but are softly textured and are in perfect balance with the bright acidity. The finish is lovely and long and leaves you gasping for another sip.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Nobile di Montepulciano Salco by Salcheto is with meats, such as a ragù of wild boar, grilled, Chianina steak, Pork sausages, salumi, and grilled or roasted lamb. Try it with Tagliatelle with black truffles and olive oil.
