Sabatino di Properzio’s Montepulciano is as stylish as his labels. While this may sound like a contradiction in terms for a grape more often associated with rough-and-ready country wine, Sabatino has set out to prove otherwise, using low yields, old vines and increasingly organic viticulture to wring new depths from the DOC.

Vineyard

The vineyards, with an average age of twenty-five to thirty-five years, have clay soils and are situated at 150-350 metres above sea level with southern and south-western exposure. The grapes were picked entirely by hand in the second half of September.

Winery

Destemming was followed by a seven-day fermentation on skins in stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation was followed by twelve months’ ageing in a combination of stainless steel vats, and twenty percent in large Slavonian oak barrels and second fill barriques.
