Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. Riserva
- 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 limited quantity of Riserva di Vino Nobile di Gracciano della Seta is produced by harvesting the best grapes only during the best vintage years.
"Rich, sweet fruited, plums, sandalwood and mocha notes on the nose, refreshing hints of dried rose petal.
Deep, dark fruited nose, some molasses, underbrush, forest character. Rich and savoury with some Chinese spices poking through.
The warmth of the vintage has a softening effect on this traditionally-styled (old, “botte grande” aged) Vino Nobile and it is starting to drink with some charm but has plenty left in the tank for those with patience." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
