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.
Passion, fire and colour. On the nose, Le Badelle is explosive. It has a strong perfume of fresh fruits such as morello cherry, blueberry and blackcurrant with final notes of coconut and ash. The palate hits you with its juicy, enveloping entry. The olfactory imprint is confirmed on the palate with a warm, intense and persistent finish.
Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by the yeasts selected from our pied de cuve. Alcoholic fermentation of whole grapes in stainless steel tanks and maceration on the skins for approximately 25-30 days.

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.
