TreRose Santa Caterina Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2013

This week’s offering delves deep into the history of one of Italy’s oldest wine regions, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which comes from the vineyards surrounding Montepulciano in southeastern Tuscany. Dating back to the 15th century, this fine wine has been enjoyed by aristocrats and nobility. Many famous figures have declared their love for it throughout the ages including poet Francesco Redi, Voltaire and Pope Paul III. Now it’s your turn to taste this rich history in every sip of TreRose Santa Caterina Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.


Tasting Notes:  Santa Caterina Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an intense red colour with purplish glints. On the nose, there is an explosion of red fruit, blackberry and orange aromas. In the mouth, the wine is immediately soft and sweet with hints of red berry fruit, cedar, mint and a long, light and elegant finish.

Enjoy With:  Roasted pork, grilled vegetables or pasta with meat sauce.

Style:  Medium-bodied and fruity red wine.

Terroir/Region:  This wine is made exclusively from the vineyards planted on the Santa Caterina hill along the Via Lauretana, an historic border area between the Papal States and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The Santa Caterina hill is an exclusive part of Tenuta TreRose which stands out for its amphitheatre-shaped vineyards of Sangiovese and a unique climate from Lake Trasimeno. The soil has alternating layers of silt, salty clay and sand from its marine origins.

Producer:  A visit to TreRose paints the perfect picture of a Tuscan estate. TreRose focuses on the effects of terroir on the Prugnolo Gentile biotype of Sangiovese, a varietal that is a key player to the winery. The richness of the terroir from the different climates, soils, and exposures of the amphitheatre vineyards gives the grapes a rich diversity of expressions. The use of modern farming techniques and sustainable farming practices make it a unique winery in the Vino Nobile designation.
