"A delicious and velvety-textured red with chili, spice, dried fruit and cedar aromas and flavors. Full body. Flavorful finish. Balanced. One of my favorite Vino Nobiles. Drink now."
Wine Spectator 90
"Violet aromas and black currant flavors make this red distinctive. Supple, yet with adequate density and freshness. A long, tobacco-tinged finish caps off this promising red. Drink now through 2023. 16,000 cases made. –BS"
Wine Enthusiast 90
"A blend of Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo, this opens with a fruity fragrance of fresh red berry, Mediterranean brush and a whiff of iris. The savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, black raspberry, clove and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. An anise note signals the finish. Drink 2016–2020. — K.O. (9/1/2015)"
" The 2012 Vino Nobile Montepulciano is a blend of 90% Prugnolo gentile, the Sangiovese clone native to Montepulciano, and 10% Canaiolo nero. The vineyards are planted on tufa soils at a South/South-West exposure in the Bossona and Martiena Crus, and range from 40 to 15 years in age. This Vino Nobile is aged in large oak casks for 24 months and cellared in the bottle for 6 months before release. " ~ Winery notes

Good - The nose has mild Concord grape aroma. Palate has mild fruit. Little hint of oak. Dry finish with mildly puckering tannins. Not bad but not as good as the 2011 which was far more refined. What a difference a year makes. There are better wines at this price. 90 pts.
