About the wine

The pinnacle of Salcheto's stunning red wine range, the single-vineyard Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 'Salco' is a brick red colour and shows delicious dried and ripe dark cherry fruits on the nose, with a touch of prune and sweet herbal core. There is definitive complexity with savoury aromas of earth, cedar, spices and a warming meatiness and leather. The palate mirrors this but shows great balance with the fruit, and the prunes and warm earth are particularly prominent. The ripe tannins provide great structure, but are softly textured and are in perfect balance with the bright acidity. The finish is lovely and long and leaves you gasping for another sip...

About the wine

The Prugnolo Gentile grapes for the Salco are grown on the most mature plots in the vineyards of the estate: 'Salco' (2 ha/5 acres) and 'Laghetto' (3,5 ha/8 acres). This clone of Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile ripens easily and allows for beautifully intense aromas and flavours. It is aged in oak for 24 months (30% in large casks and 70% in tonneaux which are slightly smaller) and refined in bottle for up to 4 years before release.
