    About the region
    Tuscany | Montepulciano
     

    Similar to the more famous Montalcino, Montepulciano is also a picturesque, historic mountain town worth seeing. The historical core has remained almost unchanged since the 16th century. The Fortezza, the old fortified castle has been carefully renovated in recent years and equipped with presentation rooms for the Consorzio del Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Here, too, the vineyards around this highest elevation lie at 200 to 600m above sea level.

    The leading grape variety is also in Montepulciano of Sangiovese, but here it is called Prugnolo Gentile. Montepulciano lies on the eastern edge of Tuscany, near the once famous spa resort of Chiancano-Terme and borders Umbria.

    Together with Brunello di Montalcino it became the DOC in 1966, and in 1980 again together the first DOCG in Italy. Unlike Brunello, the red wines from Montepulciano were popular centuries ago. Perhaps because two popes came from here and liked to drink the wine of their hometown best. But probably this is also one of the many anecdotes that Italians like to tell about wine. The fact is that Montepulciano wines have been drunk throughout Europe since the Middle Ages. Also at royal courts of popes and nobles. Therefore probably also the name originates "Vino Nobile" - the wine of "nobles".

    The climate is warm, Mediterranean and windy, the grapes dry quickly when damp, so there are hardly any diseases. Therefore, there are also many wineries here that practice near-natural or organic cultivation. Above all Avignonesi, who have converted almost 200 hectares to organic cultivation. This is also the big chance to finally get out of the shadow of the more famous "brother" to kick. There is hardly any difference between the soil, climate and grape variety, but organic cultivation brings a fine herb spice into the play of aromas.

    Vino Nobile is therefore increasingly gaining in character. And that is a fine difference compared to the sometimes already a little bit uniform colleagues from the neighboring mountain.

    However, there is also a difference in the regulations. Prugnolo Gentile is 70% prescribed for both the Vino Nobile and the Rosso di Montepulciano. Although most producers have been using almost 100% Sangiovese for Vino Nobile for years, up to 30% of other grape varieties permitted in Tuscany are permitted. In the Rosso di Montepulciano you will often find 10-20% Merlot or Cabernet, but this is quite pleasant in the Rossi, which is coming on the market a little younger.

    Vino Nobile must mature at least two years after harvesting and the Rosso can be launched early. Vino Nobile currently has around 1,200 hectares in DOCG status, which are cultivated by around 230 winegrowers. In Montepulciano, the Vin Santo is particularly worth mentioning, which is particularly cultivated here and is one of the best in the whole of Tuscany.

    Some of the best known producers in Montepulciano are Avignonesi, La Braccesca (Antinori), Boscarelli, Poliziano, Salcheto and Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta. SUPERIORE.DE
