Valdipiatta Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is made with a selection of the best Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero coming from different vineyards of the property that are managed, harvested and vinified separately. The vineyards are located in the eastern area of Montepulciano. Situated between 300 - 350 metres above sea level, they stretch across the hillside with varying exposure. The soil is primarily clay with some volcanic deposits. The oldest vineyards are planted using the traditional Guyot training system, while the newer vines are planted at a higher density of 4,500 vines per hectare and are spur cordon trained. Yields are low at around 5,000 kilos per hectare, well below the legal maximum of 8,000 kilos per hectare.
This wine is intense ruby red in colour, with aromas of blackberries, raspberries and cherry together with floral notes of violets and hints of spices and tobacco. Full-bodied on the palate, with minerality and good acidity that are well balanced with smooth tannins.
