DescriptionTre Rose is located near the historic Tuscan town of Montepulciano, the production center of the well-regarded Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOGG. Perhaps the least known of Tuscanys Big Three DOCGs, it is of equal prestige as Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino. Tre Roses commitment to Sangiovese (locally called Prugnolo), its unique terroir and its precise viticultural and vinification techniques culminate in the production of an array of distinctive, high quality wines. The Vino Nobile production zone is positioned on a hilly ridge between Val di Chiana and Val dOrcia at altitudes between 820 and 1900 feet. The climate is largely influenced by the nearby Trasimeno Lake and has soils that enjoy a variety of geological features including marine fossils, sandstone, salt rich clay and precious silt deposits. The Tre Rose estate is located in a picturesque 16th century Tuscan villa, Villa Romizi, on the slopes of Valiano di Montepulciano. The estate covers 445 acres, of which 193 are under vine. 136 acres are dedicated to the production of Vino Nobile DOCG with the remainder used for production of Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and additional varieties.
