Salcheto Vino Nobile Montepulciano 2017

Up your Montepulciano d'Abruzzo game with this easy-to-love organic Tuscan with a little extra. Made with extraordinary care, it takes one plant to make one bottle which then ferments in wood & ages in oak barrels for 18 months, finally rests for an additional 6 months to add a level of complexity often only seen from the likes of Emidio Pepe. The winemakers don't just follow biodynamic practices, they are also certified 3E which reflects their broader commitment to sustainability. Specifically, they: Operate an energy independent cellar system (where saving is the primary energy source). Conduct and certify our vineyards and our wines according to European Organic protocol. Self-produce our fertilizers (by composting) and energize our soils with 500 biodynamic preparations. Use wooden materials from controlled sources and responsibly managed forests (FSC and PEFC). Purify and recycle 100% of our waste waters (including those issued from spraying machines clean up). Adopt a waste management system allowing us to internally differentiate over 98% of them. All of which is reflected in the quality of this wine, as per: Wine Enthusiast 94 Wine Spectator 90 Parker 90 Decanter 90
