Tenuta di Gracciano della Seta recently bought a new vineyard, increasing the total vineyard extension to 20.58 hectares now.
It has a south-east exposure and an altitude of 290 meters above sea level. It is characterized by the same soil type (silt-clay) as the vineyards that surround the Gracciano della Seta winery.
The picture below shows the location of the new acquisition:
AREA: The area is particularly suitable for growing grape vines. The prugnolo gentile variety reveals its full potential through a slow and complete ageing process, helped by good ventilation, the fluctuation between day and night temperatures and excellent exposure. Late frosts and hailstorms are rare in the area.
The vineyard of Nobile di Montepulciano is planted with Sangiovese, 50% planted in 2018 and 50% in 2001.
WINES: The beautiful grapes growing here results in great wines, like the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva, the Rosso di Montepulciano (organic) , the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (organic) or the Rosato Toscana. Starting from the 2018 harvest, all the Gracciano della Seta wines are certified as organic. The estate’s wines can be considered traditional, they are suitable for ageing, but also pleasant to drink when they are young.
