This wine is intense ruby red in colour, with aromas of blackberries, raspberries and cherry together with floral notes of violets and hints of spices and tobacco. Full-bodied on the palate, with minerality and good acidity that are well balanced with smooth tannins. The long finish reflects the wine's fruity perfumes.
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.
