Red. Bindella Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Italy Sangiovese
Bottle: £11.98 club members / £13.70 non-members
The wine that bears the winery's name is typical, distinctive and direct. It is made primarily from Sangiovese with the addition of other indigenous grapes, and matures for 20-22 months in 50 hl oak barrels.
In the glass, we get the full impact of this star Tuscan grape's most typical varietal aromas: red fruits and violets, as well as light notes of toasted bread and mineral hints. A clean, attractive and elegant bouquet which presents a good balance between freshness and tannicity, and which confirms its pleasant aromas on the palate with red fruits and almonds.

Red. Tenuta Valdipiatta Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Italy Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero
Bottle: £13.95 club members / £15.85 non-members
The Valdipiatta wines are characterised by a strong personality and they frequently require a long period of repose in bottle in order to express their singularity to the full. Their Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced from Sangiovese and a small amount of Canaiolo; the wine from these grapes first matures for six months in French oak barrels and is subsequently aged for a year in 50 hl oak barrels.
It offers intense, yet clean and very well-defined aromas, of cherry jam, with notes of dried flowers and leather, dark chocolate and coffee, in a seductive fusion. On the palate it is resolute and balanced; the freshness and liveliness of some very well-integrated tannins presage a long life for this wine.

Red. Boscarelli Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Italy Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo, Mammolo
Bottle: £17.06 club members / £19.38 non-members
The company's catalogue includes nine labels among which can be found wines under the Rosso di Montepulciano and Vin Santo di Montepulciano denominations, also the odd Super Tuscan,... but the Nobile di Montepulciano wines, apart from boasting the longest tradition, are undoubtedly the ones that bring the most comprehensive understanding of the winery's work and philosophy. This Nobile de Montepulciano is produced from the Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Mammolo varieties; it ferments in oak or steel barrels, with indigenous yeasts, and is aged for 18 to 24 months in oak barrels of various capacities and origins.
The result is a red wine of radiant colour and ruby flecks. In the glass it exudes complex, attractive aromas of red and black fruits, flowers, spices and lots of minerality. On the palate it displays an exuberant freshness which successfully softens its tannicity. This is a wine which, thanks to the clay soil of the Cervognano hills, is gifted with very good structure and is capable of long evolution if properly cellared.
