You need more Montepulciano in your life! At often HALF the price of the showier big names of Brunello di Montalcino, the Sangiovese-based wines from the Montepulciano are equally as impressive and ageworthy. Montelpulciano is a beautiful medieval village perched on the top of a hill, first founded as a castle in the 8th century. The ever important Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Sangiovese) is the ORIGINAL in the region, famous and regal long before Brunello came into favor.

Today’s wine is all class with Sangiovese’s signature cherry and floral top notes with power and resonance in the bass. It’s a big warm Tuscan hug of dark cherry, anise and hints of leather. This is a stunning wine from start to finish, a staggering value and a wine you will not regret owning A LOT of.

About the Producer

Brothers Simone and Leonardo Abram, natives of Trentino, purchased Il Macchione in 2007 and converted the entire estate to biodynamic farming. At altitudes of about 350 meters in Montepulciano's fossil-rich, sandstone-strewn Caggiole Valley, the Abrams are fanatical in their vineyard management, capturing not just Sangiovese's perfume but its power. They make just two wines - this Vino Nobile, aged about 30 months total in a mix of cooperage (much longer than the law prescribes), and their Riserva, which ages in wood a good 40 months before bottling!

91 Wine Enthusiast -
Fragrant and refined, this medium-bodied red has aromas of iris, rose, ripe berry and sandalwood. It's elegant and already accessible, offering juicy Marasca cherry, licorice and ground clove. Polished tannins offer light support. Drink through 2023.
