Tasting notes

Appealing from the get-go, this 100% Sangiovese smells of summer’s bounty with cherry, plum, blackberry and strawberry. Hints of flint, iron and garden herbs provide nuance. The palate is fruit-laden but not heavy, and there is lovely freshness. Dry, linear tannins are sandy in texture and speak to the wine’s serious side. Big, powerful wine loaded with dark fruit, leather, spices and earthiness made from the Prugnolo Gentile grape.

Production process

From the Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile vineyards, one bottle per plant, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ferments in wood and ages in large oak barrels (30%) and small (70%) tonneaux oak barrels for 18 months to then refine at least 6 months in the bottle.

Fun facts

Under the management of Michele Manelli, Salcheto has become the epitome of environmental efficiency. It is the first estate in the whole of Italy to be fully self-sustainable and their energy independent cellars are a model of innovation and efficiency. Even the bottles they use are the lightest and most economically friendly bottles available!

Prugnolo Gentile differs from other Sangiovese clones in Tuscany, offering softer, more plum-like flavours than the usual black cherry - a mid-ground between the robustness of Brunello and the elegance of Chianti. Generous with velvety tannins and an outstanding balance.
