Drinking Tonight - 1996 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Lombardo

Needed something mature tonight and not that overly complex, a wine to just gulp down, this bottle hopefully should do the trick.

1996 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Lombardo
The nose indicated that I have made the right choise, with its aromas of ripe black cherries, tapenade, underbrush, decaying flowers and a hint of bakelite. Fully mature and very good. Round, sweet and soft. 
The taste is mature, velvety and warm with notes of cherry jam, asphalt, red wine vinegar and autumn leaves. A medium long finish that ends on a dry note. Drinking fine tonight and just what I needed.
