Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2004-Fattoria del Cerro

"Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby !!!!!!". This song of the Kaiserchiefs is constantly in my mind since I met this robust "cagefighter" from beautiful Toscana. Its ruby red color, intense aroma in combination with 18 months ageing in Slovanian oak casks produces an excellent after taste. It is advisable to decant this wine first, to let the tannines go a bit. Great with meat dishes.
