The Villa Sant'Anna Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Poldo is the undisputed topper of Villa Sant'Anna and without a doubt one of the most beautiful wines from Montepulciano. The Oenologist of Villa Sant'Anna has been repeatedly proclaimed as one of the best in Italy and with good reason. Already after uncorking you can smell the Tuscan hills. In only the best years, with a careful and very strict selection of the best grapes destined for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, the cult wine Vino Nobile Poldo Riserva is made.

The fermentation in barrels takes place at a temperature of 30°C with a soaking period of 25 days. Maturation in small oak wine barrels at controlled temperature for 3 years in French oak barriques and in the bottle the Poldo can still mature quietly for 2 years in the ancient wine cellar in which a natural ideal temperature and humidity prevails. The wine smells of ripe red fruits, spicy notes, roasted nuts and wood. Good structure, expressive and concentrated but with a soft taste and a fine, melting and long aftertaste. Need to catch your breath for the tannins to meld. Delicious with Tuscan stews with rosemary, but also not to be missed to enjoy this gem from Montepulciano after dinner. This is a real meditation wine. So beautiful!!

Vineyard for 2016 Villa Sant'Anna Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Poldo

This amazing winery, run by women, is located on the hills around the Italian town of Montepulciano, known for its excellent wines. Montepulciano, as most wine lovers will know, is located in beautiful Tuscany, Italy's most famous wine region. And when you say Tuscany, you naturally think of wine!

The Villa Sant'Anna winery, located there, has been owned by the Simona Ruggeri Fabroni family for about 200 years. For many years, Simona has been committed to maintaining the old, passionate family tradition of producing wines of excellent quality. She now does this with the help and encouragement of her daughters Anna and Margherita. This 'ladies team' works tirelessly and full of passion & dedication to make this already beautiful winery even more successful. In the last 15 years, winery Villa Sant Anna in Montepulciano has also set the trend by focusing only on quality. This means that the plant density has been seriously reduced, that only the best oak barriques are used, the grapes are selected manually and the wines are given time to mature. In addition, at Villa Sant'Anna they have the great advantage of their ancient underground cellars where all wines can age at natural ideal temperature and humidity. Villa Sant'Anna's oenologist has been repeatedly voted one of the best in Italy, and for good reason. Immediately after uncorking you can smell the Tuscan hills.

The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is often confused with Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. What is the difference? The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano comes from the Tuscan town of Montepulciano and is made from the Sangiovese grape, locally called Prugnolo Gentile. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made in Abruzzo and Marken from the Montepulciano grape of the same name. Pope Paul III already drank Vino Nobile in the 16th century, because according to his cellar master it was the perfect wine. It is not for nothing that the wine is nicknamed 'Pope's drink' in the local dialect. Montepulciano, like Chianti, is made mainly from Sangiovese, but is a bit fuller and has more alcohol. Very nice specimens come from Tuscany, and the wines of Villa Sant'Anna are undoubtedly among the best. In the cellar, winemaker Roberto Ferrini is lord and master. He is an experienced craftsman who belongs to the select group of the best winemakers in Italy. However, above ground, the 3 women (Simona Ruggeri Fabroni and her 2 daughters Anna and Margherita) hold sway in the ancient domain. Their 4 (red) wines are the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG, the extremely enjoyable Rosso di Montepulciano and very refined Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Only in the very best years, with a careful and very strict selection of the best grapes destined for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, is the cult wine Vino Nobile Poldo Riserva made.
