The Rosso di Montepulciano has notes of red fruit, cherry and raspberry, and is a bright ruby red color. The palate is dry, fresh, and has very silky tannins. Although considered a small wine, it can be aged for up to 10 years and still maintain its great quality.
The Wine Spectator awarded the Rosso 90 points.
One of the oldest wineries in the region, Gracciano was owned by the Svetoni family in the early 19th century. The Vino Nobile produced from the then-Svetoni winery in 1864 had been awarded the first prize at the International Fair of Turin. The cellars of Gracciano still have some of the bottles from vintage years. A new wine facility was built in 2013 after Giorgio della Seta decided to return to Tuscany to take up the family estate.
