Fattoria del Cerro, with its 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vineyards recorded in the register, is the largest private estate producing Vino Nobile. The spaciousness and the different exposition of the vineyards allow selecting the best grapes to make high quality wines. Prugnolo Gentile, the grape behind Nobile di Montepulciano, is the clone of Sangiovese, typical of this area, and which, over the course of the centuries, has adapted itself to local growing conditions. Vino Nobile is produced in three different versions: the regular wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G., the Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G., and the single vineyard selection Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ”Antica Chiusina” D.O.C.G..

Producer
Concilio is one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Trentino, with a modern approach and traditional values. Founded in 1860 by Angelo Grigolli, Concilio began producing wine at Mori, a small village in the province of Trento, in Italy’s north. Over the years the company grew in size, other local families joined the venture, and in 1990 the company assumed its present form as a private company, as a group of vineyard owners became shareholders. Concilio, whose motto is ”Quality, Style, Personality”, makes wines that are exactly that - quality wines with style and personality. Concilio prides itself on the use of modern winemaking technology, the provision of the very best marketing support, and as a leader in Italian wine production in terms of quality and value. Concilio is an ideal proposition for both the Italian and international markets.
