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.
The fermentation extends for almost 2 weeks in temperature-controlled steel vats at 28°C with racking and punchdown. Additional skin maceration continues for another 10 days.
Ruby with garnet highlights.
Enjoyable plum and blackberry notes with more serious bouquets such as leather, fruit macerated in alcohol and enticing musk on the finish.
Generous palate with sculpted tannins, mature and rich in nuances, especially on the finish reminiscent of bitter roots and berries as well as rhubarb candy.
Full tasting Notes
A complex wine divided between tactile fruitiness and sensations of absinthe.
