VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO

Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin (DOCG)

We give the Prugnolo Gentile grape our closest attention and care.This characteristic 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.
