FATTORIA DEL CERRO 2011 VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO

The 2010 release of Fattoria del Cerro Vino Nobile was a winner here at Hi Time-a Sangiovese based wine with classic Tuscan sunshine and red cherry fruit, pure, fresh, and deliciously tart. We've known the wine for years, but the 2010 was the first to climb the heights and win Gamberro Rosso's coveted Tre Bicchieri. The 2011 Vino Nobile from Cerro surprised us with a brighter, fresher, deeper flavor profile than the highly touted 2010 vintage, then the 2011 also won Tre Bicchieri. Two years in a row is a major achievement for any Italian producer, but it's exceptionally rare for a wine that costs less than $20. We think this Vino Nobile will cross categories nicely and please a lot of wine drinkers. Chianti lovers will appreciate the suave red fruit and bright, savory balance, but Fattoria del Cerro's Vino Nobile also hints at the darker depths and age-worthy structure of a powerful Brunello.

JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - "Perfumed with ripe rose, cream and sweet plums on the nose. Lots of fresh berries with savory, minty character, a layer of silky tannins and hazelnut on the palate. Better in 2016." -James Suckling
