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.

Description

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. The vineyards are located in the eastern area of Montepulciano. Situated between 300 - 350 metres above sea level, they stretch across the hillside with varying exposure. The soil is primarily clay with some volcanic deposits. The oldest vineyards are planted using the traditional Guyot training system, while the newer vines are planted at a higher density of 4,500 vines per hectare and are spur cordon trained. Yields are low at around 5,000 kilos per hectare, well below the legal maximum of 8,000 kilos per hectare.
