Poggetto di sopra - Nobile Alliance

Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.


T he Alliance is a group of six Nobile producers - Salcheto, Poliziano, La Braccesca, Dei, Boscarelli, and Avignonesi - all sharing the dedication to Nobile’s rediscovery. The six winemakers have coordinated their respective work and each crafted a cru 100% Sangiovese Nobile specifically for this project. The Poggetto di Sopra brings out the characteristics of its environment, recalling the clay soil it lays upon.
The large aromatic bouquet opens with hints of dried violet, plum and cherry accompanied by tertiary notes of undergrowth, humus and medicinal herbs such as sage, lavender and thyme. In the mouth, the sweet entry is an authentic caress where soft and silky tannins parade elegantly and remain persistent. The body is warm, straight and vinous, chestnut honey and sour cherry complements with nuances of wood notes such as coconut and licorice root.
