After the harvest in the first days of October, the vinification happens while mixing together all the 3 different grape varieties, Prugnolo Gentile, Canaiolo e Mammolo, since the beginning, otherwise the must could have rejections. They follow a fermentation with a long maceration, for at least 20 days. This Nobile is marketed after the second year of aging in wooden barrels, both French and Slavonian barrels.
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.
