The Nobile Wine of Montepulciano D.O.C.G. from always is one of the top product of the Italian and world-wide enologia.
The Nobile wine was already known at the times of the Etruscans. The Nobile Wine conserves the tastes and the scents of the Montepulciano’s territory.

The Nobile has to be producted only in vineyards located in the municipal area of Montepulciano and they are comprised between the 250 and 600 meters a.s.l.
The vineyards is the Prugnolo Gentile, selection of the Sangiovese Grosso, in one minimal percentage of 70 %. Beyond to the Prugnolo Gentile, we can find the Canaiolo Nero for a maximum of 20 %, or they can concur until to a maximum of 20 % the vineyards recommended and/or authorized for the province of Siena, provided that the percentage of white berry vineyards does not exceed 10%. The aromatic vineyards are excluded except the Malvasia of Chianti.
It also comes defined the maximum yield for every hectare and it is equal to 80 quintals, while the yield of the grape in wine is instead of 70%.
To become Nobile Wine, it is necessary 2 years of aging (for example the wine of 2000, we will trading only in 2003). In this time, the producer are able to decide for this 3 options :

1) 24 months in wood
