Terroir, microclimate and the soil composition of its vineyards. The production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is inextricably bound to its variegated and complex land of origin. In order to understand and communicate to consumers where the remarkable characteristics of the great “cru” of Montepulciano come from, the Vino Nobile Consortium has carried out a study on vineyard zoning to probe the finer details of soil structure and climate.
This lengthy study has led to the publication of a Vino Nobile Production Map
. Drawn up by the great wine expert Alessandro Masnaghetti, director of Enogea, this tool takes the form of an authentic map which outlines the main plots of land on which the cru are produced by the wine-growing firms of Montepulciano.
Not only does the production map set out to underline the organoleptic differences between various segments of production, but also comes to the aid of consumers and enthusiasts wishing to identify the their primary characteristics. This map focuses on the Docg terroir with an international vocation, that of informing foreign consumers, first and foremost, where Vino Nobile is produced, and acts as an introduction to the more extensive picture of the production areas studied and documented by Enogea.
