Santa Caterina

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Denominazione di Origine Controllata

This wine is made exclusively from the vineyards planted on the Santa Caterina hill, along the Via Lauretana, a historic border area between the Papal States and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The Santa Caterina hill is an exclusive part of the Tenuta Trerose which stands out for:

The exploitation and selection of the different expressions of Sangiovese, in this rich alternation of soils and exposures, generates this great and innovative VINO NOBILE.

Santa Caterina

Grape varieties and vineyards

Sangiovese (100% Prugnolo Gentile biotype) from the Santa Caterina hill.

Winemaking

Depending on the individual selections, the Sangiovese wines are fermented in different ways in order to respect and enhance their different characteristics:
• we look for fruit, softness and sweet tannins from the more mature wines
• we look for citrus notes and elegance from the lighter ones
• richness in taste and minerality from the areas with salty clay

Ageing

Depending on their potential, the different selections are aged separately in barriques, 10-hl casks and 30-40-hl barrels.

Tasting notes

An intense red colour with purplish glints.
On the nose there is a real explosion of red fruit, reminiscent of cherries in alcohol, redcurrants, blackberries, myrtle-leaved orange and myrtle.
In the mouth this wine is immediately soft and sweet, then moves on to a long, light and elegant finish.
