La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2018

A vivid ruby red in colour, the wine shows a fresh nose of violets, red currants, and blackberries, well fused with light notes of cinnamon. The palate is both sweet and mineral in character, and the notes of berry fruit first felt on the nose blend with a light spiciness of flavour. The wine is long and persistent on the finish and aftertaste.

La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2018

90% Prugnolo Gentile, 10% Merlot

Winter was characterized by mild temperatures and abundant rainfall, which assisted in creating, after a significant dry spell, ample reserves of water in the ground. A significant rise in temperatures during the last ten days of April assisted the conclusion of bud-burst both in the case of the early-ripening grape variety (Merlot) and the late-ripening Sangiovese as well. Spring and summer were cool, favouring a regular growth and development of the vines and grapes and leading to a very slight delay in the achievement of full ripeness.

The grapes were immediately destemmed  and given a soft pressing, and the must went into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After approximately ten days of skin contact, managed with the aim of fully bringing out the notes of fruit and flowers typical of the Sangiovese grape, the wine went through a twelve month period of aging in oak casks. 

The La Braccesca estate, with an overall surface extension of over 1255 acres  (508 hectares), consists of two separate blocks: the historic nucleus of the property, located in the township of Montepulciano, owns close to 260 acres (103 hectares) of vineyards in the finest sub-zones for the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, while the other block, with some 575 acres (233 hectares) of vineyards, is situated at the foot of the hills of the neighboring township of Cortona. The first  La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano was produced in the 1990 vintage.

A vivid ruby red in colour, the wine shows a fresh nose of violets, red currants, and blackberries, well fused with light notes of cinnamon. The palate is both sweet and mineral in character, and the notes of berry fruit first felt on the nose blend with a light spiciness of flavour. The wine is long and persistent on the finish and aftertaste.
