The Carpineto 2018 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva is dark and thick with lots of black and purple fruit packed tight within. Despite the opulance of the mouthfeel, the wine never feels heavy. Indeed, that fresh acidity adds pretty lift to the mouthfeel. The blend is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo delivered throughout this 150,000-bottle release.
