You may not be familiar with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, but you should be. Despite its long name, it makes delicious wines filled with preserved red cherry flavours. Similar in style to Chianti due to it being mostly made from Sangiovese, this is a great option if you love Tuscan wines and want something a little more refined.
The wines of Tuscany's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano enjoy a storied history dating back to the 8th Century. Receiving praise from Popes and poets as “the king of wines”, it is no wonder it was one of the first regions in Italy given DOCG status. If you are looking for a new Italian wine to try, this is a great bet.
