Vino Nobile di Montepulciano was one of the original four DOCGs created in 1980.

You may not be familiar with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, but you should be. Despite its long name, it makes delicious wines filled with preserved red cherry flavors. Similar in style to Chianti due to it being mostly made from Sangiovese, this is a great option if you love Tuscan wines and want something a little more refined. The wines of Tuscany’s Vino Nobile di Montepulciano enjoy a storied history dating back to the 8th Century. Receiving praise from Popes and poets as “the king of wines”, it is no wonder it was one of the first regions in Italy given DOCG status. The wine is similar to the nearby Chianti Classico, but it tends to be a little fuller and higher in alcohol. It typically showcases lots of red cherry jam and forest floor and can be as good as some of the best Chianti Classicos. It is not as dark or rich as Brunello di Montalcino, but it is typically much more affordable. If you are looking for a new Italian wine to try, this is a great bet.

As one of the most famous Italian grapes, Sangiovese sits on throne of the grape kingdom. The number of synonyms and clones that this charmer of a grape counts is many, which is why Sangiovese produces wines that can be quite diverse in taste.

Sangiovese is internationally famous for its Tuscan darlings: Chianti, Vino Nobile and last but certainly not least, Brunello de Montalcino. Often referred to as one of Italy’s three great B’s, alongside Barolo and Barbaresco, Brunello wines are complex and powerful with high tannins, dusty minerals and bitter-cherry characteristics.

With so many different clones, Sangiovese wines will vary widely in style and quality and some might come off as tart and thin. A good Sangiovese is earthy and complex with a wonderful appeal of cherry and a subtle hint of tomato.
