Tenuta Torcalvano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2011

Tenuta Torcalvano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 750ml 2011       
Sku: 18706

At Tuscany’s southwest edge, due south of Arezzo, lies the Montepulciano region, where Tenuta Torcalvano is located. At 300 meters in elevation, the soil at Tenuta Torcalvano is rich in clay, and slightly skeletal. High vine density, low average yields and later October harvests combine to produce grapes with concentration, complexity and a mature, balanced ripeness. The wine is fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and undergoes maceration on the skins to give it a rich color. It is matured in traditional large oak casks and in bottle before release.

Tasting notes
Aromas and flavors of minerals and cherry lead to a long finish.

 Wine Spectator 89 points (Jun 15 2015)
The cherry and plum flavors are pure, with hints of licorice and spice adding depth. This is fluid and elegant, featuring light-grained tannins and fine length. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made.-BS
 Vinous 87 points (Oct 2014)
TorCalvano’s 2011 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from TorCalvano comes across as a bit compact, with little of the generosity and opulence typical of the year. Iron, blood, sage, game, black cherries and smoke struggle to emerge from the glass. The 2011 never seems to fully come together, while tannins show distinct elements of astringency.

Food pairing
Pairs well with meats, poultry and game.
