Discover the secret of the “King of Wines”

The farmland and vineyards are mentioned as early as 789 A.D., wine was already being exported from Montepulciano in 1350. The poet Francesco Redi dedicated an entire poem to the praise of ”the king of wines.”

While the name “Nobile de Montepulciano” was invented in the 1930s by one Adamo Fanetti, it is thanks to the dedicated work of generations of winemakers that the Montepulciano has formed an essential part of the landscape of Tuscan wines for centuries.
