Salcheto Nobile di Montepulciano Salco 2018


In Stock

“From one of my favorite producers in the appellation who is fiercely committed to sustainability comes the organic Salcheto 2018 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vecchie Viti del Salco. This pretty wine delivers clean sensations with pristine fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis. The wine ages in both tonneaux and botti for 24 months (followed by an additional 24 months in the bottle). These extra steps ensure smooth tannin integration and an elegant mouthfeel backed by the natural freshness of the grape. Only 3,600 bottles were made. Drink: 2022-2035. 94 points

A fully organic estate and one of our Green Emblem ambassadors for sustainability, Salcheto recently acquired nine hectares of land (including one hectare of preexisting vines) in the Frazione Sant’Albino subregion of Montepulciano. The estate is also making a sparkling wine with high-elevation fruit (at 1,000 meters above sea level) in the province of Pistoia (Tuscany).
