Winemaker Notes

The grapes come from the PietraRossa vineyard and are generally harvested by hand in the period from 5 to 15 October. After soft pressing the must enters the fermentation phase which lasts for 18 days at a temperature of 26°/28°in 25/30 hl steel vats. Aging takes place in large wooden barrels for 30 months. Bottle refinment for 8/10 months. Annual bottles produced: 8,000

The Story

The origin of this winery is extremely ancient, indeed they are trying to follow the wine techniques of the Etrurians. The soils are mainly of Pliocene origin, with the presence of clay and sand. The oldest sources would trace the origins around the year 1000. What is certain is that already in the mid-fourteenth century Contuccis were among the most prominent families in the city of Montepulciano. Their cellar is very old with natural thick walls, allowing them to keep the temperature steady. The vineyards of the winery are located in one of the best production areas, the altitude varies between 280 and 450 meters.
