Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG, Tuscany 2016 HALF 37.5cl

A relatively young winery of 30 years in age who employ a combination of modernity and tradition in their winemaking practices. Manual collections, sulfite free vinifications, native yeasts and organic farming point to a new sustainable approach. Whilst employment of the “Tuscan Governo” method (where reserving a small parcel of harvested grapes and allowing them to partially dry out helps to ensure a good fermentation and a consistent wine), and use of large neutral “botte” and “tonneaux” barrels point to centuries of Tuscan tradition.

Grapes are sourced from the “Salcheto” Montepulciano vineyards. Wine is aged - in 70% in large neutral “botte” and 30% in “tonneaux” - for 18 months, followed by resting in bottle for at least 6 months prior to release.

A classic nose of plum, cherry jam, worn leather and earth follows through to the palette. Vibrant and textured in the mouth, with robust but well integrated tannins. Harmonious and savoury long finish entwined with rose petal, sweet spices.
