Founded in 1973 by the Cattani family, the La Calonica estate is comprised of 45 hecatres in the traditional DOCG of Nobile di Montepulciano. Through vision, determination and much hard work, the Cattani's transformed a small Tuscan farmhouse and its vineyard into a modern and successful winery. Not surprisingly, their program of renovation and revitalization began in the vineyards. After a studied, careful analysis of soil conditions, clonal selections, vine densities, and pruning systems, the vineyards were replanted with the aim of producing Sangiovese grapes of exceptional caliber.
“Dark lush black cherry, cherry and plum with a wonderful array of spice with pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Firm tannins with well-balanced acidity.While you can certainly lay this wine down for a couple years, this wine is drinking beautifully today.” The Wine Buyer, 94 Points
