Wine Tasting Note: Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, 2002, Tuscany, Italy.
Unknown Stockists. Price on Italian website is E17.60 (£12.20 approx).
A food wine - marked tannins and forceful acidity that makes for harsh drinking on its own but changes with a food accompniment. A good complexity to the aroma - fruit, herbs and something sunbaked and earthy. Made from Sangiovese although, in this case, a local clone known as Prugnolo Gentile.

As a food match this was recommended with Arista alla Fiorentina (Florentine Roast Pork) which is is a popular Tuscan dish, often served cold, although I had it warm from the oven. The pork is studded with chopped garlic and rosemary, doused with olive oil and, interestingly, has a few cloves stuck in the flanks. Before roasting several hours marinading is recommended. The wine was a superb match with the tannins and marked acidity disappearing and a more rounded whole present. A little pricey if it is £12 a bottle but that's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano for you! Alcohol 13%
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
