Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy
Massimo Romeo loves his land the wines he produces from it. Surprisingly few wineries have adopted organic farming methods in Montepulciano, but for Massimo, there was no question about it. He knows Montepulciano’s wines better than most in the area, he used to be the president of the Consorzio. He makes some of the area’s best wines from his small estate that sits on a small hill. His wines are divine and his production is quite low.
This is a structured red wine with aromas of new leather, wild berries and a touch of game. The flavors are mature with notes of black cherry, licorice and vanilla. The assertive and close grained tannins give the finish a great grip.
Pair it With:
This robust wine and its grippy tannins calls for richer and more savory foods; match it with something with substance (fat). Some of our favorites would be roasted pork shoulder, barbecued beef brisket, braised goat, aged cheddars and parmesans.
