Podere San Giovanni
Podere San Giovanni is a Century church which has been transformed into a villa and farm. Thirty years ago it was bought and the old vineyard revived. Clones of the original vines were used to plant new vineyards, quite small in size but very well positioned and highly suited to the production of Vino Nobile. The resulting wine is produced with craftsman-like attention to detail and passion. Extra Virgin Oil is also produced. The Azienda Agricola Podere San Giovanni is about two km from the center of Montepulciano, located in Madonna della Querce at an ideal altitude of 420 metres above sea level. The tufaceous terrain with Pliocene origins is also ideal.
The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, produced by Mario Prislei at the Podere San Giovanni, has been well-known for hundreds of years and is made from Prugnolo Gentile grapes in a small vineyard situated in the centre of an area which is particularly suited to the production of Vino Nobile.The tufaceous terrain with Pliocene origins is also ideal. The vines planted are 90% Prugolo Gentile (a clone of Sangiovese) and 10% Canaiolo. Podere San Giovanni's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is widely available in wine shops and is also sold privately.It can be left to age and is best drunk with red meats, game and mature cheeses at a temperature of about 18-20°. The bottle should be opened a good three hours before drinking. esclusivamente Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.
