Producer
The Tenuta di Gracciano belongs to the Della Seta Ferrari Corbelli family. The vineyards stand on the Gracciano hills (300 meters above sealevel), one of the best areas of Montepulciano. The favorable microclimate, the exposure of the vineyards, and the clay and limestone soil combine to produce a full-bodied yet supple and elegant wine. Its bouquet is intense and complex, with blackberry and spicy aromas. The careful management of the estate has improved the quality year by year, through a drastic reduction of the yields (now only 35-40 hl/ha), and the purchase of new French oak casks for the ageing of the wine. The Tenuta di Gracciano produces only Rosso and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from Prugnolo Gentile (a clone of Sangiovese), and a small quantity of Canaiolo, Mammolo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Due to its elegance and smoothness, the Nobile of Gracciano can be drunk after the three years’ compulsory ageing, but as time goes by it improves its quality and fully shows its deep richness.
