2017 Riserva Sangiovese
Noceto’s Brunello-style Riserva Sangiovese is blended from the best estate lots and displays superior fruit while retaining balance. Fruit-packed, full-flavored, and complex with a lingering finish.
"This robust and tannic wine exudes sawn oak aromas, and blends both tart and ripe red fruits on the palate. Its grippy texture and concentration give a sense of good aging potential. Best from 2023." 91 points - Wine Enthusiast (11/2020)
"Not too many wines get the 'Wow' in my handwritten notes during site visits, so I know when I go back to flesh them out for publication that we're on to a winner. This bottling is a blend of Brunello clone Sangioveses, including Altesino, Il Poggione, and Biondi Santi, and it's one of those wines that manages elegance and power in its youth, promising a beautiful future. It's structured for aging, with great acidity carrying deep cherry fruit, mixed herbs, and spices. That acidity also makes for a huge finish with a zesty, freshening push of integrated flavors that just keep coming. This bottling typically 'jumps around' a bit when young, but it's showing great already. Bravo!" 94 points - Rich Cook, winereviewonline.com (1/2021)
"Scents of sweet, lightly oaked cherries are enlivened by a slight rhubarb twist in the nose of this nimble, nicely crafted, medium-bodied wine, and its lively and lingering flavors fall right into step. Its very temperate tannins combine with measured acidity to afford a bit of firming as it goes, but its enjoyment in no way depends on further age, and near- to mid-term service with the likes of veal parmesan will show this tailored, varietally precise Sangiovese off at its best." 89 points/One Puff - Connoisseurs' Guide (11/2020)
