Nobile di Montepulciano 'Salco' Salcheto 2016

Salco di Salcheto is a faithful interpreter of the territorial and noble wine Nobile di Montepulciano, a traditional historical production of the province of Siena. It presents itself to the eye with a bright ruby red garment and with garnet tendencies and releases hints of cherry and black cherry, plum, burnt land and licorice, surrounded by an enjoyable spicy background. The taste is intense and full-bodied, with great intensity and great personality.
