Estate Notes

Nicodemi's Notàri Rosso 2013 is made from specially selected old vine Montepulciano from the estate’s finest vineyards.

The Notàri sits between the regular Montepulciano and the Nero Moro in quality terms, and this wine goes from strength to strength under the guidance of the hugely talented consultant Paolo Caciorgna, of whom Stephen Tanzer comments: “Paolo Caciorgna is not as well known as some of the bigger names but he's responsible for some of Italy’s best wines today, almost all of which, mercifully, allow the terroir they come from to sing.”

Reviews

A wine of great presence and and smoky mineral depth, still youthful and developing, with intense blackberry, black cherry and plum, floral high notes, and tremendous spice. Densely concentrated palate, wonderfully ripe and vigorous, with fresh depth and richly layered fruit and tannin; intense torrefied spice and vanilla on the development broadening into a very long ripe finish. Balanced and structured to keep, and benefits from decanting if drunk young.
