Fattoria del Cerro, with its 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards recorded in the register, is the largest private estate producing Vino Nobile. The spaciousness and the different exposition of the vineyards allow selecting the best grapes to make high quality wines. Prugnolo Gentile, the grape behind Nobile di Montepulciano, is the clone of Sangiovese, typical of this area, and which, over the course of the centuries, has adapted itself to local growing conditions. Vino Nobile is produced in three different versions: the regular wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G., the Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G., and the single vineyard selection Vino Nobile di Montepulciano "Antica Chiusina" D.O.C.G..

The 2008 Chianti Colli Senesi bursts from the glass with an array of dark fruit, minerals and leather. This is an especially dark, vibrant Chianti that could use another few months in bottle to come together, although it is already pretty elegant. The Chianti Colli Senesi is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo aged in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.

The 2007 Chianti Colli Senesi (Sangiovese, Canaiolo) is a new offering from one of Montepulciano's leading properties. The wine is made in a rich, fruit-driven style with the impeccable balance that is the signature of the estate's more important bottlings. This bold, cask-aged Chianti should continue to drink beautifully over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.
