Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, 2010, Tuscany, Italy

14 Jan

DSC03199Lush, gorgeous Sangiovese from Brunello’s little sibling down the road, and great bang for  the buck. “This round version is laced with black cherry and raspberry fruit, showing hints of cocoa and spice. Firm tannins lend support, making this well-balanced overall, with a lingering finish of warm chocolate cake. Drink now through 2022. 4,000 cases imported.” 91 pts WS. $32

#58 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 of 2013
