Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G
- Tuscany, Italy
The Gracciano Estate is one of the oldest wineries in the Montepulciano region. In the beginning of the 19th century, Gracciano was owned by the Svetoni family who built the Villa and created the Italian-style gardens that surround it. With over 400 hectares and 22 farms, the very extensive Gracciano Estate also produced a wide variety of typical Tuscan products.
"The nose is focussed on berry fruits, with aromas of cedar, dried wild flowers, five spice, polished cherrywood and a hint of iodine. Palate is savoury, green-edged, with smoky berry fruits, and structured tannins.
A very classic, upright style, plenty of tension – give it a good decant and serve with rich game stew otherwise this has a decade+ of evolution ahead." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
