Montecucco is one of the “new” wine regions in Tuscany, Italy, but undoubtedly one we will hear a lot more about in the future! Prices for many of the Tuscan wines have increased dramatically in recent years but that is not yet the case for Montecucco that is still fairly unknown
From the winery we can se the silhouette of castello Banfi, the well-known producer of Brunello wines. There, behind the hill, is Col d’Orcia, another famous Brunello producer. The two districts are just separated by the Orcia river.
This wine is made of 100% Sangiovese, and though Sangiovese often produces a little sharp and rustic wines, in this case it is the softness and elegance that dominates the taste.
App 4000 bottles made a year.
