Montecucco Sangiovese DOCG Podere Montale, Tasting notes:
Intense aroma of red fruit with spicy notes well harmonized given by the aging in wood.
Montecucco Sangiovese DOCG Podere Montale:
Obtained from the grapes of Sangiovese vineyards located in the highest part with south/west exposure. Red fermentation on the skins for about 15 – 20 days at controlled temperature (27/28 °C). This phase is followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks specifically designed for the delicate extraction of tannins and colour. After this process the wine is placed in 3,000 litre oak barrels where it ages for 12 months. Finally, it is bottled and properly stored at a controlled temperature so that it can continue its refinement.
Podere Montale, was founded in July 2014 but found its true beginning with the first harvest of the 2015 vintage. The story is all to be written. The will and the road taken in these years is to create a well-integrated reality on a territorial and social level, which can be a flagship for the entire community and for the name of Montecucco. The marl soil on which the company stands is very suitable for wine production, being located in a place that enjoys the constant ventilation of the sea and the protection of Monte Amiata.
