ORIGIN

TERROIR

Tuscany is unique for the cultivation of grapes. The history is secular, a land that has been civilized since the time of the Etruscans.The "capitals" of Chianti, on the other hand, are the cities of Florence and Siena and its lands extend right between the two provinces: it is about 70,000 hectares that fully include the municipalities of Castellina in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and partly those of Barberino Tavarnelle, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Poggibonsi and San Casciano in Val di Pesa. The vineyards are exposed to the south and west at 360-530 meters above sea level. The soil is made up of marly limestone, schist marl, clayey and, subordinately, sandstone. The skeleton is essentially composed of alberese and galestro, ideal for Sangiovese, and sandstone and clay in some individual vineyards such as Casi. Sangiovese, the main grape of the region, is a great interpreter of the unique characteristics of the land of the Black Rooster.

The winery is located in Montepulciano. The landscape of this beautiful part of Tuscany is a continuous alternation of woods, holm oaks and chestnut trees, fir trees in the higher areas, vineyards and olive groves on the flatter slopes. There is no shortage of churches, abbeys, castles and small villages of distant Etruscan ancestry. The wine, here, still preserves the ancient peasant culture. In the vineyards around Siena, between San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano, we find the purest Tuscany: that of great values, of old houses marked by time and of people who have always lived there, of wines with great personality and an ancient flavor.

Montepulciano is a medieval town of rare beauty, an ancient village with Renaissance palaces, ancient churches, squares and hidden corners. From the streets of Montepulciano you can discover not only the city but also the incredible view of the surrounding countryside, all covered by those fabulous vineyards that produce the famous Nobile. Between beautiful landscapes and perfect soils for the production of excellent wines such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG, this area combines traditional Tuscan charm with a more local character. The base of Montepulciano wine is the same as that of Chianti Classico, Orcia DOC and Brunello di Montalcino: Sangiovese, known as “Prugnolo Gentile”. Why this name? Because it is the perfect wine, the wine of nobles and of all wines, the king.

WINERY

Il Conventino is owned by the Brini family, which has always been careful to combine technological innovation with traditional practices, having an eye for the environment and for the adoption of environmentally friendly rules. They refer to organic farming, supervised in its daily activity by a great winemaker, Attilio Pagli.

Il Conventino was founded in 2003 and since then has carved out the place of one of the most interesting wineries in Montepulciano, which produces typical wines of the area in full respect of the environment.

Their style, in the cellar, is sober and aimed at enhancing the nuances of each grape variety. The production methods are based on a constant balance between innovation and tradition. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in thermo-controlled steel vats; the vinifications are separated by parcels with final assembly at the time of placing in wood: large barrels and old barriques.

In the vineyards of the Conventino, which extends for about 20 hectares, only native grapes are grown: sangiovese, colorino and canaiolo, on systems mainly set in espalier and cultivated under a certified organic regime. The maximum yield for each hectare of vineyard never exceeds 60 quintals.The production is contained and well-kept, and is equal to just 55,000 bottles a year.
