Fattoria del Cerro
2011 Vino Nobile di MontepulcianoTuscany Italy
Fattoria del Cerro is not only Montepulciano's largest private estate but also the one with the finest and most complete array or wines, the result of work on the part of its directors, first Guido Guardigli and now Guido Sodano, and most of all to the inspired winemaking of Lorenzo Landi, who first revealed his formidable talent with their wines.
Comprised of 90% Prugnolo Gentile (also known as Sangiovese), 5% Colorino and 5% Mammolo, this bold but well-balanced wine, vivid ruby in color, displays intense aromas of black cherry, violet and vanilla along with flavors of iron, smoke, tobacco and scorched earth, a perfect match with first courses of meat and mushroom sauces, grilled meats, roasted white meats and medium-aged cheeses. 14% ABV HWG
