On Friday, the Wine Advocate selected Fattoria del Cerro 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as its “Wine of the Day.” Here’s what they had to say.
The 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano takes things to another level with its densely packed, richer personality. It offers superb weight on the palate in a riper style than the Rosso, with excellent length and finessed tannins. This blend of 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo was aged for two years in a combination of Slavonian oak casks and French oak barrels. It will offer highly pleasurable drinking to at least age 12. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.
Antonio Galloni gave the wine 91 points in June 2007.
This wine is available at Goody Goody in Dallas.
