Nobile Di Montepulciano Canneto 2016
Traces of the great reputation and appreciation for the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano are already found in the annals of 790. This excellent wine was therefore discovered centuries ago and was also sold outside Montepulciano. The Nobile denomination probably derives from the times when the quality wines were reserved for noble families. The Noble knew how to preserve the particular touch of class until the present day: in 1980, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano was among the first Italian flagship wines to obtain the DOCG denomination. The maturation time of Vino Nobile in wooden barrels is established in at least two years. After three years of aging the Vino Nobile can bear the denomination "Riserva". Despite being a traditional wine, Nobile di Montepulciano is a modern wine. In fact, few other Italian wines of the last few years have known a significant development of such quality as to create an international name.
In contrast to the Reserve this Vino Nobile shows something more beautiful, lighter and more accessible. A year less of refinement gives a wine full of charm and fruit. A wonderful bottle for many opportunities.
FROM SWITZERLAND TO MONTEPULCIANO
In the 70s of the twentieth century, some wine enthusiasts in Switzerland began to buy the "table wine" of Montepulciano. after a few months, the enthusiasts increased in number and a desire to buy a farm came out.
At the end of the 80's the time came: in Montepulciano there was a promising sale. The enthusiasm for Noble of Montepulciano and the projects convinced the owner to sell to us his farm. In Zurich Canneto AG was created, and the Canneto Farm located in Montepulciano was acquired.
Utilizing an oculated vinification, choosing the right vineyard site, and bottling, are just a few of the many aspects we pay attention to. Improving day by day!
We want the company to be recognized both for its wines and for the hospitality reserved to friends who visit our cellar.
The company Canneto is extended in the western area of Montepulciano, an area with an enormous wine-growing tradition. The farms counts 48 hectares, thirty of which are cultivated to vineyards, sixteen of them reserved for Nobile Wine.
