  4. Rosso di Montepulciano DOC

This Rosso di Montepulciano is made from 90% Sangiovese (locally referred to as Prugnolo Gentile), 5% Canaiolo Nero, and 5% Mammolo from different vineyards in the Montepulciano area. A portion of the wine is aged for three months in one year-old French barriques. The final product is matured for an additional three months in bottle before release. 

Tasting Notes

This ruby red wine has opulent aromas of berries, including blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, over more subtle notes of wildflowers and sweet spices. On the palate, the wine is elegant, with well-balanced tannins, vibrant acidity, and a smooth texture. 

Food Pairing

Pair with herb grilled pork tenderloin, pasta arrabiata, Tuscan bean soup, and paella with chorizo.
