Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Innocenti, 100% Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese), two years in oak, mature vintage, leather and spice over soft red fruits, delicious. A lovely example of this classic Sangiovese based wine which sometimes plays second fiddle to the more exulted Brunello appellation. Vino Nobile from the town of Montepulciano (not to be confused with the grape of the same name from Abruzzo and the Marche) is an elegant example of Sangiovese with great ageing potential and a lovely soft warmth which makes it supremely drinkable around Autumn time.

The Innocenti estate lies between Montepulciano and Montefollonico and consists of about 32 hectares of which 12 are specialised vineyards, situated between 330 and 350 metres above sea level on medium-textured clay soils of Pliocene origin. The cellar buildings, dating back to end of the 13th century, are in the small, well-preserved medieval town of Montefollonico. When Vino Nobile made its debut as a DOCG in 1983 commentators were equally appalled at the poor quality. Now it is a more nobile beast worthy of an occasional panegyric. Aged in oak for two years and made from Prugnolo (plummy) Gentile (the local name for Sangiovese), Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo grapes, the Innocenti version is ruby red in colour tending towards garnet with age. It is a dense, spicy wine with cinnamon, plums and tea flavours finishing dry and slightly tannic with a delicate scent of violets. This is a wine with plenty of stuffing – perfect with steak, preferably bistecca alla fiorentina, grilled with olive oil and salt.
