Il Molinaccio's four hectare farm is located due east of Montepulciano in the small hamlet of Cervognano. The winemaker Alessando Sartini learned winemaking from his grandfather Adamo Fanetti, the founder of the Vino Nobile appellation. Alessandro started making wine to sell commercially eight years ago with a vision to produce high quality wine by first growing healthy and vibrant grapes. Alessandro is in the vineyard daily tending the vines to ensure that his grapes express the unique flavors and nuances of the region. He farms organically and grows Sangiovese with a little bit of Merlot and Alicante. The estate purifies its own well water and makes it water self-sufficient. Solar
panels cover all the estate’s energy needs.

This 100% Sangiovese is an elegant expression of Vino Nobile and the terrior of Il Molinaccio. The property lies at 300 meters above sea level and is composed of Pliocene sand and fossil based soils. 100% grassed: cover crops include mustard, broad beans, and Egyptian clover.
