Rosso di Montepulciano DOC
90% Sangiovese(Prugnolo Gentile), 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
TREROSE’ commitment to Sangiovese, locally called Prugnolo, its unique terroir and its precise viticultural and vinification techniques culminate in the production of distinctive, high quality wines from Tuscany’s historic Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. The TREROSE estate is located in a picturesque 16th century Tuscan villa, Villa Romizi, on the slopes of Valiano di Montepulciano. The farm in which the villa sits dates back to the Roman times, evidence of which has been preserved in the ruins in front of the villa. The centuries following have all left their mark on this historic property, from the 15th century owner - an important bishop - whose family’s coat of arms is represented in the winery’s logo, to the early 19th century street signs left on the property.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
The Vino Nobile production zone is positioned on a hilly ridge between Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia at altitudes between 820 and 1900 feet. The climate is largely influenced by the nearby Trasimeno Lake, with soils composed of marine fossils, sandstone, salt rich clay and precious silt deposits.
Today the estate covers 445 acres, of which 193 are under vine. 136 acres are dedicated to the production of Vino Nobile DOCG with the remainder used for production of Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and other wines.WINEMAKING
