Make your holiday shopping easy this year with one of our gift boxes! The Peteglia gift box features two of our most popular wines from a long-time winery partner: Peteglia sangiovese, a delightful, easy-drinking red from the Montecucco DOCG, and Peteglia vermentino, a crisp white that is an excellent companion to pastas and lighter meats. The perfect gift for the wine lover on your list!
Peteglia is an estate that’s dear to us. It’s run by two brothers, Alessandro and Marco. They grew up here, on their family farm, and then left home to study and work, acquiring a number of skills. After a decade or so, they returned to the farm, established an agriturismo, and set about turning the family vineyards into a world-class operation. Alessandro works the vineyards, and Marco takes care of the cellar. Between the two of them, they give these wines careful attention at every stage. You can taste their skill and care in every sip.
Montecucco might be the best-kept secret in Tuscany. The appellation is situated just south of Montalcino, between that famous town and Scansano, which you know from the Morellino di Scansano that we import. It’s an area that gets plenty of heat, but which still receives the moderating influence of sea breezes. Grapes grown here ripen beautifully, achieving much of the complexity that Brunello di Montalcino is famous for.
