The name was adopted from the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, where this wine was originally produced. The name â€œnobileâ€ was given due to the fact that in the past its production was reserved exclusively for the aristocratic, noble families of the area. Tasting Notes: An ethereal bouquet of violets, cherries, and wood fills the nose. On the palate, it is dry, harmonious, and fruity with a velvety, elegant texture and a long finish. Traditionally, this wine is paired with wild boar, but can accompany any game meat. Also great with aged cheeses. This is a cellar-worthy wine.
