Tradition is the inspiring muse that has led us to isolate and process separetely the grapes from the Montetinello vineyard. The great concentration and consistency of this wine are due to the dominating percentage of Montepulciano, compared to Sangiovese, and to the favourable position of the 30-year-old vineyard only a few kilometres from the Adriatic coast.

Tasting Notes: Deep violet color, the nose is ripe morello cherries, leather and sweet tobacco. Firm tanning structure integrated with mid-palate of intense flavors of dark cherries, coffee and vanilla; long finish.
