Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is their main house style for which they are best known, but they also produce Chianti, Rosso di Montepulciano, Chianti and Vernaccia as well as vin santo, grappa and olive oil.
Quite crisp wine. Some slight hints of tropical fruit flavors Nice tartness. Some minerality. Very straightforward, uncomplidated, pleasing wine. Very much a light seafood wine, US$11.99 at Total Wine
Simple but nice Italian white. Slight acidity, light citrus fruits but not much complexity. A decent mid-week summer evening refresher.
