2009 Fattoria del Cerro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wraps around the palate with succulent dark cherries, mint, tobacco, licorice and new leather. The 2009 boasts gorgeous inner perfume and luscious fruit, all supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The Rosso is 90% Prugnolo Gentile, 5% Colorino and 5% Mammolo, aged 70% in cask and 30% in barrique. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019
Prugnolo Gentile 90%, Colorino 5%, Mammolo 5%. Very deep ruby. Quite fine and sweet on the nose, and completely backward on the palate. This is young and slow and with a good dose of acidity. Muscular tannic structure, but all components are there. Fragrant fine finish. Still very young.
