Wine EnthusiastSangiovese and 10% Merlot are behind this vibrant, medium-bodied red. Aromas of ripe plum and clove follow through to the firm palate alongside juicy black cherry, ripe raspberry, ground pepper and grilled herb. It's interwoven with tightly knit but polished tannins while subtle notes of mint and espresso back up the finish.

Wine AdvocateLa Braccesca's 2012 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a very pretty wine that is endowed with sweet cherry fruit and simple spice. Montepulciano saw less rain in this vintage compared to other years and the wine reveals sweet, plush tannins as a result. This is a soft and velvety expression that would pair with grilled steaks or sausage.

Wine SpectatorRefined, with cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. The structure is more gossamer than steel, delivering a fine aftertaste of tobacco and mineral. Best from 2017 through 2024. 2,400 cases imported.
