Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Rosso di Montepulciano DOC

Vino Rosso has always been produced in Montepulciano, but it obtained DOC certification only in 1989. It is made with the same kinds of grapes used to produce Vino Nobile, but it is younger than Vino Nobile. Its colour is ruby red tending to purple and it has a fruity and winy perfume, which is also well balanced, persistent and slightly tannic. Vino Rosso is fit for all foods, we suggest to drink it with “pici al ragù”, a typical recipe of Montepulciano. (a kind of handmade thick spaghetti with meat sauce).
