Montecucco DOC

Nowadays, the love transmitted from grandfather to grandson lives among the rows of “Tenuta l’Impostino”. Bold, concentrated grape varieties are grown according to the rules of organic farming, with full respect for nature’s integrity and biodiversity.

Grape Varieties:

Sangiovese 80% – Merlot , Shiraz, Petit Verdot 20%


At Querciolaia the soil is characterized by fertile clay, with a good quantity of organic matter and rich of thin skeleton, its exposition is West and stands at 1 148ft. All the vines are pruning according to the spurred cordon system and the entire harvest is manual and starts at the beginning of September.


The grapes  are carefully harvested and manually selected on a sorting belt in the winery, before the beginning of the alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts, at a constant temperature of 26°C. The maceration lasts about 15 days with pumpovers exposed to the air till the end of the fermentation. The malolactic fermentation takes place spontaneously in cement tank before aging 6 months in bottle.

Tasting notes:

Of a deep and dense ruby colour, it impresses for the intensity of the fragrance, clean, rich of flavours with dominant notes of red pulp such as well matured cherry and blackberry and with a hint of jam. Following it vegetal notes appear of hay, warm spices and a tip of wood to extend its bouquet. It is warm, soft, full-bodied to taste, with a remarkable balance, where the freshness and the tannin well balance the alcohol charge. The final result long and very satisfying.

Food pairings:

It is a wine of great versatility and it elegantly joins cold cuts and seasoned cheese, main dishes with spicy notes, such as roe deer “pappardelle” or “carbonara”, which enhance its soft and enveloping notes. It is a natural companion to meat dishes, of which with no doubts it prefers the roast cooking, and it is perfect with the “cacciatora” rabbit, the chicken “in scottiglia” and the lamb chops.
