Salco

Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G 2013

The 2013 is a vintage that surprised us all in the end, for better or for worse. The climatic discontinuity put pressure over the fruit ripening, up to a nearly perfect September which gave us well concentrated and balanced fruits, but also offered thin skins that could hardly stand the first autumn rains. In this scenario, finally a bit ‘”classic” for the decade, our focus was once again put on careful selection in the vineyard and over the triage tables. Its wines are among the most intense of all time, thus renewed thanks also to the always fascinating work of the indigenous yeasts.

“Powerful, deep and resonant, the 2013 offers up a compelling mélange of wild cherry, underbush, incense and leather. There is an explosive energy to the 2013 that is compelling. Quite simply, the 2013 Salco is a tremendous wine by any measure.” Antonio Galloni

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.
