Contucci 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Earthy and elegant, this offers aromas of mature black-skinned berry, pressed rose petal and leather along with a whiff of game. Reflecting the nose, the linear, savory palate evokes dried cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and charcuterie alongside a hint of black tea. Taut, polished tannins and fresh acidity provide support. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2020–2030. Kerin O’Keefe

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples.

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
