El Grasso

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.


A thick floor of clay topped by a thin calcareous layer characterises the Nobile’s underworld. The clay acts as a water reserve releasing just the right amount to the vineyards. This magical environment is where the tasting palette of Sangiovese comes to life. Based on the plots’ geolocation the grapes take on a nuance of their own. Our single vineyards represent the Sangiovese tasting palette with which our Nobile is made. All vinified in the same manner, they are truly different yet can come together harmonically.
El Grasso is a fresh and yet opulent wine which follows the notes of a Jazz concert. On the nose it has hints of a mediterranean grove: cherry and red fruit accompany alfalfa and mint notes. This wine culminates in a high and sweet finish.
