Review:
Enveloping and delicious, this full-bodied, velvety red combines power and finesse, starting with inviting aromas of mature black-skinned fruit, new leather, camphor, violet and dark spice. The smooth, concentrated palate almost seems weightless thanks to smooth, tightly knit tannins and fresh acidity that balance ripe plum, mature black cherry, licorice and tobacco. Drink 2022–2035.

Review:
Beautiful cherry and light walnut aromas with hints of flowers, following through to a full yet compressed palate and a long, flavorful finish. Beautifully done. Drink now or hold.

Review:
The 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Madonna della Querce is a powerful, dense wine. Black cherry, iron, leather, licorice, grilled herbs, menthol and sweet tobacco all flesh out in a Vino Nobile that is decidedly unctuous in feel. Textural richness and fruit density are front and center. The 2015 is bold and beautiful from start to finish.
