2019 Palazzo Vecchio Rosso di Montepulciano 'Dogana' DOC
Made of mostly Sangiovese with about 10% each Canaiolo and Mammolo, this wine sees eight months in French oak. Palazzo Vecchio sits atop a shallow hill in southern Tuscany, in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG . It’s surrounded by vineyards neatly bisected by five dirt roads. Today the estate is run by Maria Louisa Sbernadori on behalf of her family. Her grandfather bought the property in 1950, primarily as a shooting estate. Maria Louisa is making pure, clean expressions of Vino Nobile, wines at the same time elegant and deeply rooted in the soil.
