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 limited quantity of Riserva di Vino Nobile di Gracciano della Seta is produced by harvesting the best grapes only during the best vintage years.
"Rich, sweet fruited, plums, sandalwood and mocha notes on the nose, refreshing hints of dried rose petal.
Deep, dark fruited nose, some molasses, underbrush, forest character. Rich and savoury with some Chinese spices poking through.
The warmth of the vintage has a softening effect on this traditionally-styled (old, “botte grande” aged) Vino Nobile and it is starting to drink with some charm but has plenty left in the tank for those with patience." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
