With the Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta Vino Nobile di Montepulciano comes a first-class red wine in the glass. Here it offers a wonderfully dense, crimson color. Ideally poured into a red wine glass, this red wine from the Old World reveals wonderfully expressive aromas of jasmine, lilac, plum and violet, rounded off by black tea, gingerbread spice and bitter chocolate, which contributes to the barrel ageing.
This red from Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta is perfect for all wine lovers who like it dry. However, it never appears sparse or brittle, but round and supple. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully silky. Due to the moderate fruit acidity, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano flatters with a velvety palate, without missing out on juicy liveliness at the same time. The finale of this red wine from the Tuscan wine-growing region, more precisely from Montepulciano, finally convinces with good reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of limestone-dominated soils.
