"Subtle but enticing perfume to the nose, offering cherry-based aromas that are tinged with bright, tangy spice. Full-bodied with a super intense bead of perfectly placed fruit and tannin. Theres slight firmness to the tannin at the end, so wait a year for perfect integration. Beautiful quality here. Not overly complex, but such good winemaking. Best from 2023."

"The perfumed and elegant 2018 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wafts up with a vivid display of crushed raspberry and spice box complemented by mentholated herbs of hints of smoke. There are depths of silky texture here and an opulent wave of floral-laced wild berries and sweet inner spice. Notes of sour citrus, lavender, round tannins and residual acids mingle through the lightly structured finale. This is so elegant."

Wine Enthusiast 90
"Made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero, this soft, full-bodied red has aromas of new leather, ripe plum and dark spice. On the enveloping, accessible palate, velvety tannins accompany fleshy black cherry, coconut and coffee bean before a bitter almond close. Drink through 2026."

The Wine
A blend of 90 Prugnolo Gentile and 10 Canaiolo Nero. The vineyards, ranging 15-40 years old, are planted at a South/Southwest exposure in the Bossona and Martiena Crus. Fermentation occurs naturally and lasts for 18-22 days. The wine is then aged in large oak casks for 18-24 months and cellared in the bottle for an additional six months before release.

The Estate
The Dei family produced their first wines from their estate in the heart of the historic appellation of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano in 1985. Now run by Caterina Dei, the estate has become one of the leaders in the region, producing lush, perfumed, fruit-driven wines that are exquisite expressions of the local Prugnolo clone of Sangiovese, blended with small amounts of Canaiolo, Mammolo, and Merlot.

The vineyards, on the slopes below the picturesque town of Montepulciano, extend over 52 hectares and are divided mainly between the crus of Martiena and Bossona. The Vino Nobile Riserva Bossona, which comes entirely from the best positions in that Cru, is considered one of the best expressions of the Montepulciano terroir. All it takes is a taste of these wines to know that they are the epitome of quality for the region.
