This product is currently sold out.
The gentle rolling hills of Tuscany are not only home to Italy`s culture and language, but also to the grand wine estates of Chianti to the north and the more modest yet superb estates of Montalcino and Montepulciano in the south. Sangiovese is the red grape variety that unites Tuscany`s wine producing districts in its various distinct clones. However, planting of international grape varieties, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, have given rise to the world renowned `Super Tuscan` wines.
Susanna Crociani`s 14th century cellars are situated in the heart of Tuscany in the town of Montepulciano. The vineyards, covering about 10 hectares, are on medium-textured soils well-suited to the growth of the vine and giving excellent results. They are planted with Prugnolo Gentile (80%), Canaiolo Nero (10%) and (10%) with Mammolo and white varieties.
The vineyards of Montepulciano in southern Tuscany are planted with Sangiovese grapes (known locally as Prugnolo) used to produce one of Italy`s noblest red wines. Bright ruby red in colour and typically full flavoured, Rosso di Montepulciano displays rich flavours of cherry and red berries, a soft gamey character combined with subtle oak. Supple tannins and a firm structure lead into a long, full flavoured finish.
This is an ideal accompaniment to red meat, rich pasta dishes, game and strong cheeses.
