The Gracciano Estate is one of the oldest wineries in the Montepulciano region. In the beginning of the 19th century, Gracciano was owned by the Svetoni family who built the Villa and created the Italian-style gardens that surround it. With over 400 hectares and 22 farms, the very extensive Gracciano Estate also produced a wide variety of typical Tuscan products.
Gracciano della Seta goal is to produce wines that deeply respects all the characteristics of both the terroir and the Prugnolo gentile variety. They seek to create elegant and traditional wines, placing particular emphasis on the selection of the wooden casks used for ageing alongside a small number of 5 hl tonneaux. The result is a wine with a long history and tradition passed down from generation to generation, a well-defined style and a generous terroir.
Starting from the 2018 harvest, all their wines will be certified as organic.
"Velvety, creamy, polished cherries and dried violets on the nose. The palate has crunchy cherry cranberry fruit, with smoky and balsamic notes and a touch of cacao. Straight from the bottle this impresses but after half an hour in the glass (if you can keep it that long!) more nuances and sweetness appear but the freshness and vivacity remains. A great winter month house red." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
