Tenuta Torcalvano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2007

Tenuta Torcalvano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 750ml 2007     
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 along finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Aug 2010)
The 2007 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from TorCalvano is made in a fairly rich, fruit-forward style that gains focus and clarity with air. As attractive as this is, one could reasonably expect a little more Sangiovese character. Subtle notes of earthiness, leather and spices inform a long, generous finish that is penalized by a slight dryness in the tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.

Food pairing
Pairs well with meats, poultry and game.
