Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG
It is one of the most important Tuscan red wines. It is produced around the ancient town of Montepulciano which has become famous around the world for this special wine. Made from Sangiovese grape, locally named Prugnolo Gentile, it has a deep red colour with orange shades, a mature taste and, thanks to its ageing in wood, some hints of vanilla.
