Salcheto’s Salco is brick red colour and shows delicious dried and ripe dark cherries on the nose, with a touch of prune and a ripe, sweet core. There is definite complexity with savoury aromas of earth, cedar, spices and a warming meatiness and leather. The palate mirrors this but shows great balances with the fruit, and the prunes and warm earth are particularly prominent. The ripe tannins provide great structure, but are softly textured and are in perfect balance with the bright acidity. The finish is lovely and long and leaves you gasping for another sip…
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 'Salco'
Made from the oldest vines of the Salco vineyard, the most mature and important of our estate. A field of 2ha, with vines of 29-31 years of age, entirely cultivated with a clone of Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile selected at the winery that at each harvest easily reaches a slight overripe. After 2 years of wood it ages up to 2 years in bottle before being put on the market. This wine, son of the historical experience made over the Salco vineyard, is also dedicated to the Alliance Vinum project, the union of six great Vino Nobile producers, aimed at the growth of individuals and of the whole territory.
