Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. Toscana
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, long-limbed and vertical, is a new and invigorating breeze: lively and vibrant, the nose reveals aromas of small red fruits, black currant and raspberries, intertwined with aromas of green tea, sap and citrus flowers. On the palate La Banditella is bright and the scent of fruit returns accompanied by a good acidic vein that supports the length. Vivid tannins with a savory finish.
Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by the yeasts selected from our pied de cuve. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and maceration of the whole berries for approximately 25-30 days.
18 months in large oak casks

The sediments you might find in this wine show that it is made of pure Sangiovese with minimal intervention. The deposit is due to its high content of a natural antioxidant called quercetin, which is perfectly safe. This is not a flaw, it is a characteristic of the pure Sangiovese.
