Son of a year full of excitement as was 2010, this bottle is the first release of “Nobile Riserva” at Salcheto. In search of an important wine made from Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile able to express soft freshness, we chose the ancient “Governo Toscano”: grapes of the same crop are put aside, which will be reshuffled to the freshly racked wine once slightly wilted in late November. With a small percentage of Colorino grapes, this Riserva expresses strength and freshness with incredibly mature and smooth tannins.
Wine Spectator 90 points
Broad and rich, exhibiting plum, licorice, tobacco and salty notes, backed by a firm, vibrant structure. Harmonious and long, with a powerful finish. Best from 2017 through 2028.
