Salcheto Nobile di Montepulciano Salco 2016


In Stock

“The Salcheto 2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vecchie Viti del Salco (made from organic fruit) occupies that special place between primary and tertiary intensity. The bouquet reveals plum and dried cherry aromas, but it also shows oxidative aromas of tar, spice and a touch of dried fruit or apple skin. This open-knit wine is drinking nicely right now, and I wouldn’t recommend that you wait much longer. Made from old vines, this is an accessible wine of personality. Drink: 2020-2025. 93 points

Salcheto is one of the first and most fervent organic farmers in this beautiful part of Tuscany. These wines are the product of a totally sustainable winery operation, down to the columns of natural light that penetrate deep underground, foregoing the need for lightbulbs in the fermentation and barrel rooms. If you come for a visit (and there are charming rooms to rent), you will not be disappointed. The Salcheto property enjoys beautiful views of the Montepulciano skyline.”
