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.
