Winemaker Notes

A ruby red wine with purplish reflections and a very expressive nose. Aromas of explosion of red fruit shine through. On the palate, this wine tastes of brandied cherries, currants, blackberries, bitter orange and myrtle berries. There is a unique sweetness and softness that only Sangiovese grapes form the Montepulciano area can achieve.

Wine Enthusiast
Lovely aromas of plum, crushed violet, iris and cake spice mingle in the glass. The delicious, smooth palate doles out layers of ripe black cherry, blackberry, white pepper and cinnamon alongside velvety tannins. It's already tempting but will age well for a decade or more. Drink 2017–2027.

Tenuta Trerose, Italy
Image of winery

The Trerose estate is located in a picturesque 16th century Tuscan villa, Villa Romizi, on the slopes of Valiano di Montepulciano.

 The farm in which the villa sits dates back to the Roman times, evidence of which has been preserved in the ruins in front of the villa. The centuries following have all left their mark on this historic property, from the 15th century owner - an important bishop - whose family’s coat of arms is represented in the winery’s logo, to the early 19th century street signs left on the property.

As part of Bertani Domains, Trerose enjoys the combined resources and winemaking expertise of its parent company, while maintaining complete autonomy for the stylistic direction of the wines.

Today the estate covers 445 acres, of which 193 are under vine. 136 acres are dedicated to the production of Vino Nobile DOCG with the remainder used for production of Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and other wines.

Montepulciano

View all wine

This significant Tuscan village—not to be confused with the red grape of the same name widely grown in Abruzzo and the Marche regions—was home to one of the first four Italian DOCGs granted in 1980.

Based on the Sangiovese grape (here called Prognolo Gentile), the village’s prized wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ranks stylistically in between Chianti Classico, for its finesse, and Brunello di Montalcino for its power. With a deep ruby color, heavy concentration and a firm structure given by the village's heavy, cool clay soils, most Vino Nobile di Montepulciano will demand some bottle age.

Sangiovese

View all wine

The perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is among Italy's elite red grape varieties and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino

Elsewhere throughout Italy, Sangiovese plays an important role in many easy-drinking, value-driven red blends and on the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed success growing in California and Washington.

In the Glass

Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with qualities of tart cherry, plum, sun dried tomato, fresh tobacco and herbs. High-quality, well-aged examples can take on tertiary notes of smoke, leather, game, potpourri and dried fruit. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

Perfect Pairings

Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and fine-grained tannins create a perfect symbiosis with tomato-based dishes, braised vegetables, roasted and cured meat, hard cheese and anything off the barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may actually contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines as a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
