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, 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.
