Private Montepulciano wine tour

Itinerary


The trip to Montepulciano from Florence is around an hour and a half each way, so we'll get an early start. Once we reach the beautiful region, we'll immediately head for the first winery. An organic estate where we can learn about the nuances of the territory of Montepulciano. We'll visit the vineyards and the winery to get a good grasp on the traditional wines before we head for the tasting with the vineyard manager. Drinking great wines help build up an appetite so we'll head for a nice restaurant with some good vistas and great local foods. We'll make sure pair your lunch with wines of the region to continue the tasting experience throughout the day. A short stroll through the village will help digestion and will get us ready for more wine. We head towards a notorious cellar of Montepulciano where we will be treated to another lovely wine tour and sit-down tasting.

VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO

Wineries: Around 80

Total square hectares: Around 1250

Total production: Around 6 MM bottles

The ancient cellars inside Montepulciano testify to how Vino Nobile has was first produced and aged there. 

The wines is the first to be elevated to DOCG status in the beginning of the 80'ies but continues to suffer from association with the grape Montepulciano.

Despite its name, Montepulciano, the grape that grows prevalently is the Sangiovese, along with other native grapes such as Mammolo and Canaiolo. Trebbiano, Malvasia and Pulcinculo are used for the region's renowned sweet wine.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG is the area's claim to fame, which in good years is also made in a Riserva version. Vino Nobile contains mostly Sangiovese, but can be blended with other regional red grapes. Rosso di Montepulciano is a similar wine, but essentially younger and ligther. Vin Santo comes out beautifully, too.
