Quality first – Quality above all
Passion, quality and craftsmanship: the three key words of the Priorino Cellar that you discover with the first taste.
The quality is its distinctive trait: a careful selection process accompanies every phase of the work, until arriving at the finished product.
Nothing is left to chance: every detail is followed by hand, with wisdom and method.
Using the most natural treatments possible, Jacopo and his collaborators, carefully follow every step, from the selection in the vineyard of the bunches and the grapes, to produce a high quality wine.
Like a craftsman’s workshop, in the Priorino Cellar every wine is looked after and cared for in minute detail: those particularities that make the difference and give an original and craftsman’s touch to the creation.   Every bottle is a unique and precious creation, the fruit of a careful selection and passion for work and for good wines.

Viola Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
“Every wine of Montepulciano is King”, wrote the poet and scientist Francesco Redi.  It is the royalty, the nobility and the elegance which are the distinctive traits of the history and the reality of the success of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, suitable for the most refined palates and appreciated by enthusiast all over the world.
The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ‘Viola’ is the flagship of the Priorino Cellar, produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes, harvested and selected by hand.   Its processing is studied in every detail to guarantee the quality of the product: the grapes are carefully selected both in the vineyard and on the   sorting table, then left to ferment in French and Slavonian oak vats.  The wine, once the lees are removed   is then put into 5hl French oak tonneaux barrels, specially produced from a study by the historical French coopers, where it ages for 24 months and is subsequently bottled.
The nose presents an intense and deep characteristic of bitter aromas, black berry and undergrowth with a floral note of rosehip and violet, with net menthol and eucalyptus and balsamic sensations.  It has a taut, crispy, dense and sweet taste that is amplified by its persistence; the after taste has rich nuances, from chocolate to mint, to toasted almonds, and a finish of caramel to rhubarb with a light toasting.
