2019 Villa Sant'Anna Chianti Colli Senesi
The Villa St Anna winery has been owned by the Simona Ruggeri Fabroni family for about two hundred years. The winery is located on the hills surrounding the town of Montepulciano, known for its excellent wines. For many years, Simona has been committed to upholding the old, passionate family tradition of producing wines of excellent quality, now with her daughters Anna and Margherita. The last 15 years in Montepulciano have also set the trend by only focusing on quality and this means that they have seriously reduced the planting density, they only work with only the best oak barriques, grapes are selected by hand and wines are given the 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. The Oenologist of Villa Sant'Anna has been repeatedly voted one of the best in Italy and for good reason. Already 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.
