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.
The Estate's business philosophy has always been based on the respect of tradition and of the environment. For this reason no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used and every effort is made so that the wines fully reflect the characteristics of the terroir and that all technological procedures preserve the qualities of the raw material. Since 2015, The Gracciano Estate practices an organic viticulture.
"The nose is focussed on berry fruits, with aromas of cedar, dried wild flowers, five spice, polished cherrywood and a hint of iodine. Palate is savoury, green-edged, with smoky berry fruits, and structured tannins.
A very classic, upright style, plenty of tension – give it a good decant and serve with rich game stew otherwise this has a decade+ of evolution ahead." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
