Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2006 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigneto Santa Pia is rather dark and closed in on itself at this stage. Red cherries, pipe tobacco, earthiness and minerals emerge over time, but only reluctantly. The Santa Pia remains a touch firm and unyielding with a Nebbiolo-like intensity on the taut, wiry finish. This needs to be opened at least 30 minutes in advance to allow for some of the wilder notes in the bouquet to dissipate. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.”,,, (Oct 2010)

Wine maker notes
Once fully ripe the grapes from the Santa Pia vineyard in the municipal area of Montepulciano were destemmed and softly crushed. Maceration lasted 20 days during which time the wine completed alcoholic fermentation at a maximum temperature of 30C. It was then placed in French and Hungarian oak barriques where malolactic fermentation was completed. The ageing period in barriques lasted 14 months during which the wine was racked several times. It was bottled in early spring. Alcohol : 13,5% Vol.
