(From 2012 Vintage) The characterestic grape of Montepulciano expresses the full potential of a region with an acknowledged gift for viticulture. The result is our Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano- well structured, with longevity and perfumes that are intense but not exaggerated, faithfully expressive of deep, Tuscan roots and the ancient bond between the soil, man and culture.
