CANTINE VITTORIO INNOCENTI, VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, 6 Bottle Case 75cl
A brighy ruby red in the glass. Aromas of black cherries, violets and mint. On the palate, firm and dense with pronounced yet well-balanced tannins. Further black fruit notes combine with a spicy backbone. Lingering finish. Great with roasted wild mushrooms over polenta, Tuscany's famous Ribollita soup or a simply braised lamb shank with borlotti beans and shaved fennel.
The Innocenti estate lies between Montepulciano and Montefollonico and consists of about 32 hectares of which 12 are vineyard. The estate is situated between 330 and 350 metres above sea level on medium-textured clay soils of Pliocene origin. Steeped in history, the cellar buildings date back to end of the 13th century, are in the small, well-preserved medieval town of Montefollonico. Most of the estate is dedicated to Sangiovese, although some Canaiolo Toscana is also found here and used in the blend. Whilst not one of our natural wineries per se, they embody traditional Tuscan wines, rather than pandering to international markets.
