This wine is the result of the careful selection of Prugnolo Gentile and Canaiolo Nero grapes, grown on vineyards situated on hilly land. The wine is refined for at least eight months in the cellars of a historical monastery which nestles beneath the church of Santa Maria dei Servi in Montepulciano. It has a brilliant, lively, ruby colour with a characteristically strong aroma that has a distinct hint of shrinking violets. It tastes dry and well-balanced with light tannins.

The producer

The Gattavecchi family have been producing wine in Montepulciano for five generations, and have played a significant role among the historical companies that introduced Vino Nobile di Montepulciano to Italy and the world at large. Gattavecchi wines originate from vineyards located on the best hillsides in the administrative area of Montepulciano and San Gimignano. This means that the company is in a position to select the very best grapes, not only for the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, but also for the production of a splendid Vernaccia di San Gimignano and certain dessert wines, such as Vin Santo. Gattavecchi wines are refined in casks and barrels in the historical underground cellars of the twelfth century Padri Serviti monastery, which nestles beneath the church of Santa Maria dei Servi in Montepulciano. Members of the Gattavecchi family personally concern themselves with the production of their wines. Under the supervision of Valente Gattavecchi, the sons and daughters, Luca, Gionata and Daniela closely follow every phase of the production process step by step. It is a job that, above all, is motivated by a love of the land, a passion for wine, and a desire to work alongside friends, colleagues and customers, some of whom are now spread throughout the world.
