This wine is deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are intense aromas of cherry, violet and ripe black berry fruit mixed with notes of spices. It is full-bodied with smooth, firm tannins and a fresh acidity. This wine is silky and elegant, with a long finish.
Located at the heart of the Vino Nobile zone, Tenuta Valdipiatta was founded in 1973 and then purchased at the end of the 1980s by Giulio Caporali. In 2002, he handed over the management of the estate and winery to his daughter Miriam, who brought in top Bordeaux oenologist, Eric Boissenot in 2010. Boissenot also consults for Lafite, Latour, Margaux and Palmer. The main grape varieties planted on the 40 hectare estate, of which 30 hectares are under vine, are Sangiovese (also called Prugnolo Gentile in Montepulciano) and Canaiolo.
