Description

The Contucci family is one of the oldest in Montepulciano, in fact they have lived here continually since the XI century. Prior to the Renaissance they started cultivating vines and still continue today. Their farm holding area extends over 170 hectares, of which 21 are cultivated vineyards. The vineyards, consist only of native vines and are grown by the spurred cordon technique. In the historic cellars dating from the XIII cent. all the wines of the company are aged: Vino Nobile (Classico, Pietra Rossa, Mulinvecchio, Riserva), Rosso di Montepulciano, Il Sansovino, Vin Santo, Bianco della Contessa, around a total of 100.000 bottles a year are produced. The winery is available all year round and after the tour we offer a free tasting of our products.
