DOCG Nobile, which means that the grapes must be grown in accordance with a strict certification procedure in a specific region of Tuscany in order to earn the name. The name, Vina Ati, is inspired by the fact that Sangiovese prugnolo grape berries are the oldest ever to have been found, and were discovered in our own province among Etruscan artefacts dating back to the 2nd century BC. “Vina Ati” means “the mother vine” in Etruscan. It is aged for two years in oak barrels, and one in the bottle. The grapes are harvested in September and fermented in their skins for 15 days in stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged for two years in a 10 hectoliter Slavonian oak barrel. We then bottle the wine and leave it to age yet another year in the bottle. Our Nobile di Montepulciano “Vina Ati” will remain of the highest quality for the next 15 years. We recommend it be served at a temperature between 16-18° C. A dry, full bodied red wine with soft tannins, it pairs extremely well with protein-rich foods such as meats (especially game), cheeses and legumes.
