Named for the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, the term nobile has historical roots in the original practice of reserving this wine exclusively for the aristocratic families of the area. Carpineto's Vino Nobile is produced from fruit harvested exclusively from their Montepulciano Estate. The ethereal bouquet shows elegant notes of violet and toasted oak nuances. Bold fruit flavors envelope the palate with a velvety, elegant texture and long finish, it is dry and full in style. This Riserva benefits from extensive aging in a combination of Slavonian and French oak barrels for 18-24 months, followed by 12 months in bottle.

Wine SpectatorTop 100: 2018, Rank: 11 Designation: Smart Buys. The stunning bouquet of ripe black cherry, black currant, leather and woodsy spice notes is enticing, while the sweet fruit is a match for the dense structure. The lengthy finish lingers, with tobacco, eucalyptus and iron accents. Drink now through 2030. 12,200 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas suggesting underbrush, oak, new leather and chopped herb come together in the glass. The austere palate offers dried cherry, dried sage and roasted coffee bean set against close-grained tannins that grip the finish.
