The Wine

The Nobile of Montepulciano is one of the oldest and most appreciated wines of Tuscany.

The Nobile is produced with a particular variety of Sangiovese grape named Prugnolo Gentile, for its strong plum bouquet that gives it to the wine. The sandy clay mixture topsoil and gently sloping hills (sunny and well-drained) promote favourable conditions to produce full-bodied/strength flavour wines, but with a delicate fragrance.

The Nobile Wine of Montepulciano is a DOCG Wine (Denomination of Controlled Origin), the greatest recognition in the world of the Italian wine. The Nobile of Montepulciano is the perfect wine for a food assortment like the traditional Tuscan dishes – red grilled or roasted meat, baked meats, game and seasoned cheeses.

The History

Montepulciano is an old Etruscan settlement and, according to the legend, it was founded by Lars Porsena, the powerful Etruscan King of Chiusi.

Located in a strategic position between two main ancient trade routes (Arezzo-Chiusi), Montepulciano is mentioned in early 715 CE as Politiano Mountain (“monte Poliziano”).  For a long time in the Middle Ages the city preserved a significant importance and a flourished economy, despite the ongoing struggles between Florence and Siena for its political and territory control.Its architectural forms still preserve the characteristic fashion of an “S” shaped medieval city, enclosed with three circles of walls built around the 14th century.

The city’s golden age dates back to the beginning of the 15th century, when the arts and the literature flourished thanks to a long period of a significant political stability, which contributed to ascend a remarkable cultural prestige.

After 1511 the city falls under the control of Florence and follows its history until the Unification of Italy.
