Gracciano della Seta: Vinous points

Gracciano della Seta received 92 points from Vinous for the wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2018.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano:

The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the oldest and most prestigious Tuscan wines: it comes from a clone of the Sangiovese variety which in Montepulciano is called Prugnolo Gentile, because of its characteristic plum bouquet.
The special link between Sangiovese and the terroir, going back to ancient times, as well as the rich sand and clay soil, create the ideal conditions for producing full-bodied, aromatic wines with delicate tannins.
Since 1980, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a “vino a denominazione di origine controllata (DOCG)” (controlled and guaranteed designation of origin), which corresponds to the highest recognition on the Italian wine market.


The vineyards planted on rich and fertile soil produce some of the best Italian wines.

The small medieval hamlets reflect the colours of the earth and transport us into a world of sensations, tastes, smells, culture and tradition that seems to hover between fairytale and reality.
