Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G 2011

The 2011 vintage is remembered among the difficult ones, but it is under those challenges that a single vineyard wine can make a difference. Pitfalls mainly came from the now frequent light and heat “storms” that beset the skins and grapes maturation in general. Careful work in the vineyard and a careful selection of grapes have instead allowed to enhance the vibrancy of color, the texture and fullness of years like this.

Gambero Rosso – 3 Bicchieri

“It shows up in the nose with fresh aromas of herbs, mint hints and then a crisp fruit, such as blueberries. In the mouth the attack is mild, non-invasive with a safe and tasty drink, it then finishes with a compelling and growing taste”

Our mission is to seek quality, both in the vineyard and the cellar, with an unfailing respect for the character of the grapes.

Manual collections, sulfites free vinifications, native yeasts, “Tuscan Governo” method, large “botte” and “tonneaux” barrels are the tools used to get wines that we would like elegant and soft, with pronounced aromas and unique for each vintage released.

Wines predominantly made of Sangiovese, the prince of Tuscany, symbol of the Montepulciano terroir.
