 tasting note

Bindella, Vino Nobile de Montepulciano 1992
Colour is garnet red, thin to medium density. A really lovely nose of bright cherry fruit along with animal notes, leather and tobacco. Could be Burgundy. On the palate very forward red cherry fruit carries through with a delicious plum-skin, sour edge. Lots of American oaky spice in the finish, but not overdone. Good chewy texture from well judged acidity and mellow tannins. Lovely finish stays balanced and pure. Very impressed by this classy, careful wine-making. (12/97)
