Intro: In 1983, we fell in love with a little corner of paradise in Tuscany
and with the wines of Montepulciano. We weren’t shocked by the crumbling walls or abandoned vineyards. For us, Vallocaia was a diamond in the rough, a gem that couldn’t wait to shine again. It just needed passion, dedication and patience. In perfect harmony with nature, the jewel has come back to life. A place where a generation of dedicated winemakers painstakingly uphold the grape-growing and wine-producing traditions of the local area.
Over the years, Vallocaia has expanded its borders and enriched its
lands with ideally positioned vines, as well as olive groves, woods and
fertile plains. Today, after more than thirty years’ work to transfer the most authentic expression of our land into the bottle, we can confidently say that "We guarantee our wines. From the vine to the glass". We look forward to sharing with you the beauty that nature has given us.

Review: WINE SPECTATOR: 92 points
Focused and balanced, delivering cherry, leather, tobacco and tar flavors. The sweet fruit and dusty tannins offset each other, and the finish lingers with tobacco and underbrush notes. Drink now through 2023. 4,150 cases made.
The aromas in this bright, taut wine evoke new leather, game, underbrush and wild berry. On the palate, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity frame juicy Marasca cherry, clove and licorice flavors.
