ABOUT THIS WINE

This Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva is medium-bodied and resplendent with black cherries and black raspberries entwined with notes of tobacco, savory herbs, wet stone, and underbrush. Its several years of age have enabled it to beautifully integrate its fruit and secondary characters with its acidity and tannins. It remains well-structured yet it is smooth from beginning to end.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

The Sant'Agnese Estate has been run by three generations of the Fanetti family, beginning with Adamo, followed by Giuseppe, and now Elisabetta, who picked up her father's secrets over the years, accompanying him through the vineyards as a young girl. The estate encompasses 112 hectares of land on the slopes below the old town center of Montepulciano. 18 hectares are given over to vineyards, 12 to olive groves, and the rest to arable land and woodland.

The vines are meticulously maintained by Elisabetta and her colleagues, who together administer the summer pruning, the thinning of the fruit, and the scrupulous selection of the grapes at harvest time. Vine density is 3,000 plants per hectare, and the land is of Pliocene origin, comprised primarily of sandy clay. The Sant'Agnese Estate sells its wines throughout Italy and abroad.
