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.
Passion, fire and colour. On the nose Le Badelle has a strong cherry, blueberry and blackberry scent with ending notes of rum and black pepper. In the mouth, it hits you with its warm, intense and persistent finish.
The grapes were picked on September 29th.
Alcoholic fermentation of whole grapes in stainless steel tanks with the use of indigenous yeasts. Approximately 30 days of maceration on the skins.
22 months in oak.
