A fluid and supple red, yet offers grainy tannins to support cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. On the slimmer side, yet balanced. Best from 2013 through 2019. 15,000 cases imported.
The 2008 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows lovely intensity in its dark fruit, grilled herbs, licorice and earthiness. This, too, is another feminine, graceful wine with gorgeous length and a polished, harmonious personality. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Manapetra shows more depth and textural definition than the straight bottling. This too, is made in a mid-weight style, but it possesses gorgeous inner perfume and sweetness in its fruit. Subtle French oak shapes the generous, caressing finish. The Manapetra comes together nicely with time in the glass, but the wine will be even better in a few years? time. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
