    • Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2018 (BIO)

      Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2018 (BIO)

      Discreet ruby red with light reflections. Warm, well-dosed bouquet of wild berries, cherries and some smoke. On the palate, finely meshed tannin, plus lots of juice and fruit, floral and spicy notes, compact. A fine salty vein in the harmonious finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Juicy and elegant, this offers bright red cherry, dried thyme, wild rose and orange peel. Finessed, clinging tannins are decidedly chalky in texture. Mid-weight and mouth cleansing, it finishes with an almost grapefruit tang. Winemaker Giuseppe Rigoli says that even ripening allowed the estate to pick Sangiovese at full phenolic ripeness in the first week of October. Though Merlot only ever makes up a small percentage of the blend, there is even less than usual as the vines were hit with downy mildew." Decanter

    About the winemakersTenuta di Gracciano d. SetaTuscany | Montepulciano
    Tenuta di Gracciano d. Seta

    The exclusivity of the wines of the Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta is documented until the middle of the 19th century. Thus, in 1864 the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano of the winery won the main prize of the International Wine Festival of Turin. A small number of very old bottles from the company known at that time as Cantine Svetoni, founded by the Seta Ferrari Corbelli family in the heart of the Sienese region at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level, are still in the winery today. The wine house with the resounding name, which is surrounded by a magnificent Italian garden built around 1800, quickly succeeded in establishing itself nationwide as a top producer. By the way, the estate was once the centre of a 600-hectare estate employing hundreds of workers. The foundation stone for today's winery was laid in 1960 by Piera della Mazzucchelli della Seta Ferrari Corbelli Greco.

    Today, wine lovers from all over the world benefit from the grape yields of the 70 hectare estate, which have now been significantly reduced to 30 to 35 hectolitres per hectare. The reduction in yield allows a loving production and gives the wines a concentrated taste. In addition to two classic Vino Nobile, the winery with a deep garnet red Rosso di Montepulciano has another impressive distinguished „little brother“ in a very manageable assortment. Beppe Rigoli is available as a consultant in the cellar. In his Fattoria Ambra, the oenologist produces a number of wines from different vineyards, where he expresses the elegance of Carmignano with great ability, sympathy and modesty. The plants of the Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta move between elegance and power. They mature in new French and Slavic oak barrels as well as in French tonneaux.

    The Gracciano hills, on which the berries of the Tuscan producer grow on about 18 hectares, contain limestone and clay. Hot summers and mild winters in Montepulciano are good conditions for viticulture. In the Tenuta di Gracciano a Sangiovese clone is cultivated with the dominant grape variety Prugnolo Gentile as well as some Canaiolo, Mammolo and Merlot (for the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano). The style of the Sangiovese grapes, cultivated by Piera's granddaughter Vannozza, lies between that of classic Chianti and that of Brunello di Montalcino. In recent years the winery has undergone a major renewal programme. Many old vines have been replaced by optimized new Prugnolo Gentile vines. Also the cellar changed fundamentally and corresponds today to very modern standards. SUPERIORE.DE
