Winemaker's Notes

The Prugnolo Gentile grape gets the winery's closest attention and care. This characteristic grape of Montepulciano expresses the full potential of a region with an acknowledged gift for viticulture. The result is the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – well structured, with longevity and aromatics that are intense but not exaggerated, faithfully expressive of deep, Tuscan roots and the ancient bond between the soil, man and culture.

Blend: 85% Prugnolo Gentile, 15% Colorino, Canaiolo, and Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The most refined of Vino Nobiles; a classic. A nose of unsuspected elegance and complexity; iris, fresh plum, herbs and a hint of linseed. Big, mouthfilling, fresh and tangy on the palate, with great distribution of tannins and vigorous, earthy finish. Needs time to open out, but has huge potential. "
93 Points

"This VN shows lovely balance and polish with ultra-fine tannins and blueberry character. Hints of walnuts. Full and silky textured. Better in 2014."
91 Points

"The 2010 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is dark, powerful and mysterious. In this vintage, the fruit is quite black, which adds to the wine's brooding, intense personality. Melted road tar, graphite, scorched earth and licorice add complexity to the powerful, authoritative finish. This is a great showing."
91 Points

"This red starts out smooth, evoking black cherry, plum and tobacco flavors. The dense tannins emerge midpalate and elements of new oak grace the finish, leaving accents of vanilla and toast. A harmonious wine. Drink now through 2020."
90 Points

"Black cherry and mushroom scents place this firmly in Tuscany, while the richness, smooth integration and clean lines give it an international feel. The wine’s acidity has a tomato-like tartness that would clean up after braised boar."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
