The Wine

The red of Montepulciano Torcalvano is the version of pure Sangiovese with a more contemporary character thanks to its marked qualities of youthfulness of the fruit and freshness typical of the grape. It goes perfectly with all traditional Tuscan dishes and beyond.

Tasting: Delicate, red flowers, and very sophisticated aromas with some spicy notes. On the palate it is balanced and elegant, with a fresh finishing
At the table: At our “Villa di Nozzole” we like to match it with “pappardelle” with ragout
First harvest: 1997
Shelf life: up to 5 years
