Lodola Nuova Nobile

The story

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the oldest wines in the world. On listing various Tuscan wines in joyful verses, the poet Francesco Redi wrote “Montepulciano, of all wines, is king”. Even Voltaire mentioned Montepulciano wine in his “Candide”. The adjective “Nobile” is derived from the wine’s personality and sums up the Ruffino style.

Enjoyable plum and blackberry notes with more serious bouquets such as leather, fruit macerated in alcohol and enticing musk on the finish.
