This has matured to classic brick red. The nose is very complex with prototypical Tuscan currants, sundried tomato,...

It is treat to find a mature vintage of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano in our LCBO stores. A very elegant and sophisticated nose here with dark plums, ripe berries, currants, floral, soft leather, spices and earthy. This wine is medium bodied (13% Alc.) and nicely structered with silky smooth tannins, complex mouthfeel and fresh acidity. The finish is long, savoury and slightly tart. 30% of this Sangiovese based wine was aged in French Allier barriques while the remainder matured in Slavonian oak casks. An honest wine here with a real sense of place, great food companion and a superb value. Need I say, strongly recommended.

The 2005 Salcheto Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano is nicely aromatic, medium bodied, integrated wine. On the nose, yogurt, cherry, coconut and vanilla can be noted, whereas the palate displays yogurty strawberry. Tannins are dusty and subtle to refined, acidity is nice and food friendly and finish is long. The wine should be decanted for up to 2 hours and tasted throughout as it changes quite noticeably; upon opening, the wine has more of a French character with strawberry yogurt notes (bit bretty), whereas later it loses this characteristic and changes into more of a typical Tuscan. My impression: NICE, 90 pts - a recommended buy. Tasted August/11.
