Gattavecchi Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an Italian wine region situated in Tuscany. It is often confused with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, but the 2 have very little in common apart from the fact they are both red wines.

One is a wine region, the other a grape variety.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano can be literally translated Noble Wine from Montepulciano, which in this case is the name of a city.

It is only produced as a red wine and as a Vin Santo – a sweet style of wine. It has received the DOCG status in 1980. DOCG stands for Denominazione di Origine Contrallata e garantita. This means the wine is produced in a designated area and made and aged in a specific way using only authorised grape varieties. It basically guarantees a higher quality of wine.

An outstanding wine from Tuscany. Fragrant and refined, this elegant red offers enticing scents of woodland berry, pressed rose, violet and culinary spice. The polished focused palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and clove set against precise fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2030. Editors' Choice. Score - 93.

Food Pairing:  The acidity and tannic structure of these wines really makes for a great match to tomato based sauces, meats, especially fat rich meats and stronger meats. Wild boar ragu and pasta is a fantastic and common match as is the local Tuscan sausage and bean stew. Also great matches are grilled meats, especially beef or stronger meats such as game.
