A full-bodied Vino Nobile di Montepulciano red wine blend of 90% Sangiovese (Prugnolo Gentile), 5% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot produced from grapes grown in the Lodola Nuova estate situated close to the medieval Tuscan village of Montepulciano. A stellar vintage showing ripe dark cherry, blackberry and spicy, savoury flavours on the palate.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano food pairings: sausage and bean cassoulet, meat lasagne, vegetarian chilli.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Tuscany wine region, Ruffino Lodola Nuova 2015 Nobile Di Montepulciano is a full-bodied Italian red wine blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine grapes are grown in the Lodola Nuova estate situated close to the medieval Tuscan village of Montepulciano. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak casks. Meaty and juicy with blackberry , black cherry, and dark plums flavours on the palate. One to be leisurely enjoyed over a braised brisket dinner. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
