Basic info:Vino Nobile, Di Montepulciano, Italy 2013
Type: Red Blend
Price estimate: $17 (at Total Wine)
Look:Ruby red in color. Somewhat translucent. No noticeable legs, possibly light alcohol.
Smell: Not much smell, but jammy with a hint of dark cherry.
Taste: Pepper, spice and some black fruit. Smooth wine with nice acidity. Bob noted mild tannins and a light mineral taste. He also got tobacco on the finish, which I didn’t get at all. Thin mouthfeel.
Conclusions: Good table wine. Very drinkable and it has a nice taste with not a lot of alcohol after taste to it. It is a little thin, but not bad at all. Solid wine.
Other notes: We still are not exactly sure what type of wine this is, but I’m thinking a sangiovese blend of some kind. It is a good wine to have with dinner, and will blend with a lot of different foods.
From the bottle: “A dry red wine with pleasant violet hues and a fresh and persistent bouquet. At the taste it has good freshness and tannin acid balance.” 13.5% alcohol by volume.
