Notes from the Winemaker:

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.

Ratings & Reviews


92 Points & #54 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:

"Bright black cherry, plum, earth, vanilla and toasty oak flavors are the hallmarks of this well-crafted red. Balanced, this needs a year or two to integrate more fully and extend the finish. Firm grip. Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 16,000 cases made, 2,600 cases imported. —BS

92 Points - James Suckling:
"A rich, flavorful red with dark-berry and milk-chocolate aromas and flavors, as well as a hint of nutmeg. Full-bodied yet focused and polished. A year or two will bring it completely together. Try after 2021." - 25 Jul, 2019
