Le Badelle

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 color. On the nose, Le Badelle is explosive. It has a strong aroma of fresh fruits such as morello cherry, blueberry and black currant with final notes of coconut and ash. On the palate it strikes you with its juicy and enveloping entrance with a warm, intense and persistent finish.
