Winemaker's Notes

Dark ruby garnet color with a powerful sweet nose of plums leather and game. Silky and long, with lovely blackberry and hints of black pepper. The bouquet is delicate and the palate is dry with a slight scent of violet. This wine will cellar beautifully through 2015. Enjoy it with roasted and grilled meat, game and mature cheeses.

The Vineyard "La Calonica" is near "Le Capezzine" in the centre of a wine producing area of the very highest quality. The vineyard is on the hills of Valiano, in the Comune of Montepulciano and part in the Comune of Cortona. It is an area of great wines both red and white. The vineyard is composed of two farms, "La Calonica" and "Capezzine Vecchie". They are both situated on soft hills with a gentle slope, these two farms constitute the entire productive and cultural entity of over 120 acres of which 90 are vineyards.

The vines planted in the zone of "Nobile di Montepulciano" are D.O.C.G. and those in the zone of "Cortona" a are D.O.C.
