La Banditella

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.
La Banditella, fresh and elegant, is a new and invigorating breeze: vivacious and vibrant, on the nose it reveals fresh fruit aromas, wild strawberries and red currant, interwoven with scents of musk, sap and citrus flowers. In the mouth, la Banditella is bright and fruity, quite structured and with a long and sapid finish.
