Dal Cero Family Vineyards – Tenuta Montecchiesi

Italy

In the rolling countryside of Cortona, the Dal Cero family is exploring new possiblities for the Sangiovese grape.

Under the guidance of oenologist Dr. Nicolo D’Afflitto, winemaker Davide Dal Cero draws upon 42 hectares of vineyards in this ancient viticultural region around Cortona. His Tuscan wines from Cortona are spectacular: the pure, driving essence of the grape, ripe and muscular.

Decreasing the yield per vine, grown on predominantly sandy clay, and aided by the warm spring and summer climate, the wines show amazing structure and durability. This allows extended aging normally associated with much more expensive wines from neighbouring regions such as Chianti Classico.

Grapes in these vineyards include Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah. State-of-the-art equipment in the recently renovated wine cellar contributes to the crafting of complex, traditional wines with a modern appeal.
