Sanguineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano '16

Poderi Sanguineto I & II is Dora Forsoni’s 50-hectare family estate in Montepulciano in southern Tuscany.Dora started working in the vineyard alongside her father back in 1968. He taught her how to tend their old vines of Prugnolo Gentile (the Montepulciano variant of Sangiovese), Mammolo, Canaiolo and Nero Toscano—organically farmed always—and how to make very traditional wines. But he sold off most of the fruit in bulk; Dora scrapped that practice in 1997 and began bottling Sanguineto wines for the first time.

Dora embodies the phrase "salt of the earth," as you can always find her in her vineyards, tending to them. The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most elegant expressions to come out of this region. Don't get us wrong, you will get that signature grip and structure from both Sangiovese and having it spend 3 years in botti, but the fruit and palate are incredibly pure and full of natural concentration, thanks to the old-vines that Dora continues to use.
