    Considering that the average price of a bottle Vino Nobile is normally over $20, this 2015 from Fattoria del Cerro is a find. Aromas of earthy and pleasantly herbal black cherry fruit and floral meld with a richly flavored palate with rounded tannins and bright acidity. It's a lot of wine at the price and is ideal with roasted and grilled meats as well as firm cheeses.

    The nose opens with fun peppery fruit and moves to dried cherry, cranberry, with a little herbal earthiness that borders on dried mint. The palate begins a little green/stemmy and develops into layered dried red fruits, and finishes with a savory hay note.

    The nose ear is earthy, full of brambly notes and soft red fruit expression. At a taste, it really shows off its character. Wildly intense, the acid, brightness of fruit and a tannin structure that seems to sizzle on the back palate all play out in dynamic fashion. There is plenty of delicious fruit to be had, but still shows off its old world charm. This is would make a brilliant wine to pair with roast chicken and winter vegetables.

    Whoa, what a tasty little number! Dark cherry and plum on the nose, the fruit feels heavier upon opening but recedes a bit with air, creating lovely balance between dense spiced fruit and those classic Vino Nobile di Montepulciano tannins. This incredibly-priced 2015 from Fattoria del Cerro is both ripe and edgy, with lift from the Sangiovese and a subtly herbal, dusty finish. And it drinks even better the following day! This is a lot of delicious vino for the money.

    As one of Italy's oldest wine regions recognized for their quality, it's remarkable to find these wines at such a great price. The nose on this is classic sangiovese--dark fruit, warm spice and earth. This is a dense and complex wine that comes with this kind of ripeness levels. But like classic sangiovese, the fresh acid keeps the wine focused. It has a nice long finish, with elegance and complexity you rarely find even at higher price-points. A tremendous value.

    The nose of this wine shows the warmth of the vintage, perfectly ripe, deep plumy, saturated aromatics. On the palate you see the incredible balance of this vintage, ripe yes, but not over ripe anywhere just pure focus, length and concentration. The flavors are dense, focused but extraordinarily supple, especially for this winery's past profile which was more tannic and gritty. This wine has excellent balance but you can still feel its' density. A long, persistent finish that carries the dense plum while adding a bits of spice and Tuscan brush. An extraordinary bargain regularly but this price is insanely good.
