Vino Nobile di Montepulciano hails from vineyards in and around Montepulciano in Tuscany. Made exclusively from Sangiovese and aged for at least two years, La Ciarliana has been made for three generations by the Frangiosa family in the hills surrounding Montepulciano. Juxtaposition of delicate violet, raspberry, and spice aromas on the nose. The palate however exhibits powerful fruit yet fine tannic structure and fresh acidity, leading to a conclusion of savoury spice. This wine is perfect with roast meat, full-flavoured pasta or cheese. Decanting of the wine several hours prior to drinking is advised.
