``LE CAGGIOLE`` VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO
Denominazione di origine controllata e garantita
Only tradition and knowledge can allow us to face the future: VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO “LE CAGGIOLE” is reborn. An important work that led to the awareness of the very high quality yield of the “Le Caggiole” vineyard that, after being studied, cared for, and re-planted, has allowed the production of a great, elegant and refined Sangiovese.
16-18 months in 500/600 litre French oak tonneaux
approx 6.500 bottles
The studied choice of Sangiovese rootstocks and clones, the planting layout and the type of soil and environment give the wine a refined, sweet flavour with saline hints and very gentle tannin on the palate.
The 14-hectare Le Caggiole vineyard is located at an altitude of 350 m above sea level, on the road from Montepulciano to Gracciano. Not far from the Asinone vineyard, it has a completely different microclimate and geological profile from the latter. The exposure of the vines is east, the soil is decidedly sandy, of marine origin.
