The Dei family produced their first wines from their estate in the heart of the historic appellation of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano in 1985. Now run by Caterina Dei, the estate has become one of the leaders in the region, producing lush, perfumed, fruit-driven wines that are exquisite expressions of the local Prugnolo clone of Sangiovese, blended with small amounts of Canaiolo and Mammolo.

The 2010 Vino Nobile Montepulciano is a blend of 90% Prugnolo gentile, the Sangiovese clone native to Montepulciano, and 10% Canaiolo nero. The vineyards are planted on tufa soils at a South/South-West exposure in the Bossona and Martiena Crus, and range from 40 to 15 years in age. This Vino Nobile is aged in large oak casks for 24 months and cellared in the bottle for 6 months before release.

"A blend of Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo, this opens with a fruity fragrance of fresh red berry, Mediterranean brush and a whiff of iris. The savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, black raspberry, clove and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. An anise note signals the finish. Drink 2016–2020." - Wine Enthusiast

"Violet aromas and black currant flavors make this red distinctive. Supple, yet with adequate density and freshness. A long, tobacco-tinged finish caps off this promising red. Drink now through 2023." - Wine Spectator
