Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG cantina Salcheto
The red Nobile di Montepulciano wine is produced in Tuscany in the Salcheto winery that since 2011 is produced with the Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile grapes. The wine making takes place in wood barrels to enforce the structure and the aging lasts 18 months to which are added 6 months of bottle refinement.
The prestigious “Nobile di Montepulciano” wine is characterized by a light storm which broke down on the peels by damaging them and so disturbing the natural maturation of the grapes. The choice of each berry makes the profit very low but it gives a lively and structured wine.
