Description

Details of wine

If the company could be defined by the title of a film we could say that "Three friends fall in love with Tuscany" would be ideal to describe the Vecchie Terre di Montefili winery.

Everything stems from the union of three great wine lovers Nicola, Frank and Tom who find in this ancient cellar the way to realize their entrepreneurial dream.

The search for the right place lasted a long time but stopped on the hill of Panzano where this ancient cellar was located.

Vecchie Terre di Montefili is like a tree that protects all those who are part of its daily life and that has its roots in the past when the Medici produced wines right on these hills.

Everything takes place in total respect and protection of the vine, with careful pruning, spontaneous fermentations and long aging in barrels that can be found in every bottle produced by Vecchie Terre di Montefili.

The tip of the production of this cellar is the Anfiteatro wine obtained from 100% Sangiovese in only 5000 bottles and which stands out for its organoleptic characteristics.

Pure product from organic agriculture, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in barrels and tonneaux.

A Sangiovese to remember.

Color

Rubino radioso.

Smell

Ampio e tipico panorama olfattivo che si manifesta con mirtilli e ribes neri ancora croccanti, viole in appassimento, sottobosco con bacche di sanguinella, alloro e canfora, netta la nota ematica e intensa la speziatura di pepe di Sichuan e cannella, leggera la tostatura di caffè.

Taste

La freschezza vibrante rende snello ed equilibrato il sorso dalla forte personalità. I tannini sono potenti ma vellutati, la spinta sapida piena di energia gestisce una lunghissima persistenza ricca di echi fruttati e speziati.

It was 1979 when Roccaldo Acuti, a textile entrepreneur from Prato, bought a small plot in Montefili on the northern slope of the Conca d'Oro di Panzano. With passion and constancy, first he and then his daughter Maria and son-in-law Tommaso Paglione, Piedmontese winemaker, have dedicated themselves to the enhancement of this territory and its expressions in the bottle. In 2016, the Acuti family decided to sell to three American entrepreneurs, Tomas Peck, Frank Bynum and Nicola Marzovilla, who decided to operate under the sign of continuity. In fact, the company is located inside the Conca d'Oro amphitheater, so named for its fertility that made it golden when wheat was grown here, and that with the resolution of the Municipality of Greve in Chianti in 2012 became one of the first biodistretti of Italy. Biological conduction therefore for the ten hectares of vineyard that insist, at 500 meters above sea level, on the typical clayey and rich skeleton lands with Galestro and Alberese. Spurred cordon plants, which become inverted for over forty years, which give life to the amphitheater, the company's flagship wine. Sangiovese obviously master of the vineyard with remnants of earth left to the Cabernet Sauvignon as the only support and as raw material of the Bruno di Rocca that, with the 2012 vintage, is prolonging the maturation, thus skipping the tasting for this year. In the cellar Tommaso Puglione has been replaced by Serena Gusmeri, who is continuing the long maturation between large barrels and 350-liter Tronçais, which have always been accustomed to the company's wines.
