Marc Almert about the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Wine fairs: That sounds like excitement and enjoyment. In reality, however, they are usually quite "dry", hectic days on which you rush from one appointment to the next. This makes those moments when you get to talk to winemakers and the glass in front of you begs for a lot of attention all the more enjoyable. That's what happened to me at the last Vinitaly in Verona at the Le Bèrne booth, when we were chatting with the Natalini family and I thought to myself with this Prugnolo Gentile in the glass: "WOW, why haven't you opened something like this for so long?" My resolution for 2023: drink more Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, because its red fruit, peppery spice and animating flow make a bella figura both on its own and with an uncomplicated cold cuts platter.

Podere Le Bèrne / Fam. Natalini

Winemaker Andrea Natalini and his nephew Frederico, the budding oenologist at the winery, are the pillars of the family business. But at Le Bèrne, everyone pitches in to make great wines! Wines of excellent quality at fair prices, authentic, warm-hearted, and inviting, just like their producers. Welcome to Italy!

The winery Le Bèrne is located in south Tuscany, in the province of Siena, amidst the beautiful landscape of Montepulciano. The famous Vino Nobile has been produced here since the 14th century. In the 1960s, Egisto Natalini and his son Giuliano decided to vinify the grapes from their vineyards themselves. The winery was founded and it brought new splendour to the Tuscan winemaking tradition. In 1995, Giuliano's son, Andrea, a graduate agricultural engineer, joined the business. Andrea manages all the viticultural operations, supported by the renowned oenologist Paolo Vagaggini.

Grape variety

Colorino

Brings color to the game

This red variety's name is its manifesto. The berries are primarily used to color wines, as the dark juice from the fleshy Colorino grape gives blends a beautiful, deep color, even in small quantities. From Chianti to Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, many different wines benefit from Colorino, which is cultivated in all corners of Tuscany, as well as Umbria. Colorino even grows wild in the forests, and the vine's leaves sometimes turn completely red.

Varietal wines from this grape are hard to find; winemakers appreciate it mostly for its color intensity.

Prugnolo gentile

Epitome of Tuscany

Chianti classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino nobile di Montepulciano: the Sangiovese is in each of the classic red wines from Tuscany. For a long time, it was assumed that its birthplace was here. After all, it appeared under various synonyms in Tuscan documents dating from 1600. But in 2004, researchers unveiled that one of its parents originated in Calabria in southern Italy. Today, it is the most planted variety in Italy. In addition to Tuscany, it fares well in Emilia-Romagna, Marche or Umbria. It is an exceptionally lovable wine: its aromas of cherry and plum, violets and spices are complemented by fresh acidity and a juicy texture. It wins people around both as cheerful, drinkable wines with pizza and pasta and as barrel-aged top class wines. Carried by Italian immigrants, it found its way to California and Argentina. However, it does not have the same reputation there.

Prugnolo Gentile

Mammolo

Flowers for the nose

This red variety comes from Italy and produces red wines with a clear scent of violets. This explains its name, as the violet is called “mammole” in Italian.

This vine is known under various synonyms, the most well-known of which is probably Malvasia.

In Corsica, where it is grown on an area of around 800 hectares, Mammolo is known as Sciaccarello. It is happily blended there with Sangiovese, which the locals call Nielluccio. Mammolo probably made its way to Corsica when Genoese merchants controlled large swathes of Mediterranean trade. They supposedly brought the originally-Tuscan vine to the island, where it quickly established itself.

In Italy today, the vine is only seldom found. There are at most 200 hectares throughout the entire country.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
