This Nobile hails from the famed Montepulciano region of Tuscany, where our Sangiovese grapes – known as Prugnolo Gentile, in the region - are grown 250-350 meters above sea level. Combined with Canaiolo grapes, they are first aged for 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels, then subjected to bottle aging in the bottle for an additional 6 months. With further aging, it develops into an even more delicious meditation wine. This rich red has an intense taste and a large bouquet, making it suitable for a wide range of combinations. Its bouquet opens to wild fruit aromas with distinct mineral tones, which define and delineate the aromatic offering. The mouthfeel reveals good complexity, and color is a strong ruby, brilliant color tending to garnet with age.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the excellent companion for game, pasta, meat sauces, steak, carpaccio, pecorino and other mature cheeses. It is advisable to decant the wine before consumption, as this will allow you to fully savor its qualities.
Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.
When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.
Montepulciano is a picturesque hill town 25 miles (40km) southeast of Siena, southeastern Tuscany. Viticulture here dates back many centuries to Etruscan times. According to DOCG rules, to be labeled as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a wine must come from vineyards on the hills which surround the village of Montepulciano. This area is made up of slopes reaching 820–1968ft (250–600m) in altitude, located between two rivers.
The grape variety is Sangiovese (known locally as Prugnolo Gentile), the same variety used to make another of Tuscany's great red wines, such as Brunello di Montalcino. Sangiovese grapes must make up at least 60–80% of the final wine, and may be complemented by Canaiolo (10–20%) and other local varieties cultivated in the province of Siena. The aging period for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a minimum of 24 months (36 months for the riserva wines), of which at least 12 months must be spent in oak barrels. The barrels have a lower surface area relative to the volume of wine they contain, that means less oak flavor in the wine. Oak barrels are used not only for their flavor, but for the controlled maturation they provide.

An elegant style clean and lively and it pulls itself to gather with a profound sense of firmness and textural
I can't get enough of this wine. I'll be buying more soon!
One of my favorites from the winery. I am normally a Brunello girl but this is delicious as well!
