Tre Rose Vino Nobile di Montepulciano "Simposio" Tuscany, Italy, 2010
Overview of the Wine
The Trerose estate is located in a picturesque 16th century Tuscan villa, Villa Romizi, on the slopes of Valiano di Montepulciano.
The farm in which the villa sits dates back to the Roman times, evidence of which has been preserved in the ruins in front of the villa. The centuries following have all left their mark on this historic property, from the 15th century owner - an important bishop - whose family’s coat of arms is represented in the winery’s logo, to the early 19th century street signs left on the property.
The Vino Nobile production zone is positioned on a hilly ridge between Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia at altitudes between 820 and 1900 feet. The climate is largely influenced by the nearby Trasimeno Lake, with soils composed of marine fossils, sandstone, salt rich clay and precious silt deposits.
Firm structure that opens up to an alternation between sweet and elegant flavors. Complex fragrances of spices and minerals with a prevailing note of coffee.

This structured red opens with aromas of plum, underbrush, exotic spice and coffee. The palate offers black cherry, vanilla, toasted oak, anisette and espresso alongside bracing tannins that dry out the finish. - Kerin O' Keefe
