Wine Advocate-Parker : The La Braccesca 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano delivers a textbook performance of Sangiovese from the Montepulciano area of southern Tuscany. The wine opens to a garnet color with dark amber highlights. It moves over the senses with loosely knit, textured grain. On the nose, it shows generous aromas of blue and purple fruits, spice and toast. This is a carefully contemplated and executed expression; however, it stays true to that wild or slightly rustic personality that characterizes this appellation.
