"With a picture-perfect view of the town of Montepulciano to the north, Salcheto’s 18 hectares of Vino Nobile surround the winery. The self-sufficient facility is a model of genuine green initiatives, and the wines sit at the top echelon of the denomination. The 2019 captures the warmth of the vintage, with sun-warmed raspberry and cherry, heady violets and yellow broom. Fresh and succulent, it is loaded with concentrated, joyful fruit while smooth, suede-like tannins hem it all in effortlessly. Deceptively simple sounding but in reality quite sophisticated."
"The nose is structured around notes of strawberry and raspberry, with balanced undertones of both delicate rose petals and sharp gunpowder. The berries get denser and sweeter on the palate, which sets up an indulgent milk chocolate finish, while chalky tannin's contrast that plushness. This is a great reminder of how much pleasure can be derived from Vino Nobile."
