La Braccesca Vigneto Santa Pia Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2012


SKU 19525



Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2008 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Vigneto Santa Pia is a bit slender in this vintage. It has good length and energy, but a measure of mid-palate juiciness is missing. Hints of tobacco, sweet herbs, licorice and smoke are layered into the soft finish. The Santa Pia is 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Merlot.

Wine EnthusiastCoconut, baked plum and French oak aromas come together in the glass. The taut, medium-bodied palate offers red cherry fruit with hints of toast, espresso and star anise, framed by fine-grained tannins.

Wine SpectatorThis fluid red seems to match black cherry, spice, earth and tar flavors and mouthcoating, grainy tannins. Needs time, or a match with grilled meat or a hearty stew.
