We are big fans of what Dora Forsoni is doing at Poderi Sanguineto in the town of Monteulciano. Her Vino Nobile di Montepulcianoandnbsp;is one of the last traditional wines made in the village and the Rosso is cut from the same cloth.andnbsp; In fact, all her wines start out life as Vino Nobile coming from a single plot of vines plantedandnbsp;not only to Sangiovese,andnbsp;but also includingandnbsp;20-30% Mammolo and Canaiolo.andnbsp; As the wines age Dora decides which casks to declassify as Rosso di Montepulciano bottling themandnbsp;one year before the Vino Nobile.andnbsp; The Rosso captures the same compelling aromatics of the Vino Nobile but on a lighter frame with less pronounced tannins. Expect bright red fruit, subtle floral notes, and sweet spices cut by bright acidity.andnbsp;
