Nobile

di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.


T his wine is made with Sangiovese grapes highlighting the balanced and harmonious traits of its habitat. The wine shows a sleek medium body, seamless tannins and a distinctive tasting profile. Great for the ‘now’ it reveals an impressive ageing potential.
In the glass it has intense garnet red reflections. On the nose, aromas of red berries, cherry and pomegranate and the unmistakable violet scent of Sangiovese. In the background a touch of vanilla and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it is well balanced and ripe cherry and plum return, supported by a dense tannic texture. The body is warm, ethereal and enveloping with a long and persistent finish.
Grapes

100% Sangiovese.

Harvest

From September 10th to October 1st.

Vinification

Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by the yeasts selected from our pied de cuve. Pied de cuve is the process by which a vat of grapes is harvested in advance and used to prepare a natural yeast, specific for a grape variety and / or vineyard. This will become the basic yeast for the fermentation of all the other grapes, which will be harvested later. With this process we enhance the link between man, the vineyard and the wine that will be so representative of our habitat.

Ageing

18 months mainly in large Slavonian oak casks (called botti) and oak barriques (225 ltr and 500 ltr).
