Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2009 La Braccesca, Antinori
Now owned by the Antinori family, the La Braccesca farm, which extends over a total surface area of 1037 acres consists of two distinct and separate blocks: the historic nucleus, located in Montepulciano, includes 254 acres of vineyards in the appellation’s finest sub-zones for the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The first Vino Nobile di Montepulciano produced by La Braccesca was the 1990 vintage. In this 2009 10% Merlot is blended in with the local clone of Sangiovese known as Prugnolo Gentile. The wine was aged 12 months in oak barrels and then 12 months in the bottle. It scored 92 points from James Suckling, 91 points from the International Wine Cellar and 90 points from the Wine Advocate who said “The 2009 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano impresses for its soft, voluptuous personality. Silky and refined from start to finish, the Vino Nobile presents a highly attractive melange of sweet dark cherries, licorice and tobacco. This is a decidedly forward, fruit-driven Vino Nobile. The medium-bodied structure suggests it is best enjoyed over the next handful of years. The blend is 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.”

    Comments about Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2009 La Braccesca, Antinori:

    While this wine certainly has that old world Chianti like feel, there is some serious depth, structure and body to this wine. Sour cherry, dried herbs and earthy notes are met by concentrated dark fruit on the palate with firm tannins and smokey notes. This wine has a lot of character and charm, much more complex than your average Vino Nobile.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Pizza and Pasta
