This is one of the most famous wine towns. And without bothering Redi who, in his “Bacco in Toscana”, showed all of his admiration for the wine produced in Montepulciano, the fame of certain products, like Vino Nobile and Vin Santo, has now extended way beyond the national boundaries, proving to be one of the most excellent Italian products in the world.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano holds a national record: it was the first wine to be assigned the DOCG mark (AA 000001). Ruby red in colour, tending to acquire garnet highlights with age, it has an intense, floral aroma. The flavour is dry, balanced and persistent. It is a wine full of character, perfect for pairing with foods that have a similarly outstanding personality, such as red meats, game, cured meats and mature cheeses.

Rosso di Montepulciano DOC:  made with the same care and passion as Vino Nobile, under strict regulations, this wine too is known as one of the Tuscan products of excellence in the world. Perfect for drinking with all courses of a meal, from pasta with meat sauces to grilled meats, cured meats and mature cheeses.

Vin Santo DOC: Not just a wine, but the oldest symbol of Tuscan hospitality. The production process – which is complex and requires constant attention – has always been the same. The end result is a precious wine, with a colour ranging from golden yellow to amber, an intense aroma and a smooth, velvety flavour. Nowadays, it is presented as a prestigious wine for meditation, or as a dessert wine, but it also perfectly accompanies certain cheeses at the end of a meal.
