Wine & Spirits 91
From a biodynamic estate thats been fully energy independent since 2011, this is produced according to the governo method, in which some of the grapes are allowed to dry slightly, concentrating the flavors. Its a generous red, with bright acidity and notes of orange zest to balance the dense raspberry and blackberry tones, and to elevate the finish.

Wine Advocate 91
The organic Salcheto 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva opens to intensity and bright aromas. This estate shows favorable results with its 2015s. The bouquet here is generous and rich with dark cherry, blackberry, plum, potting soil and pressed violets. To the palate, the wine shows some texture and grain, but the wine ends with a mid-weight presentation and dusty tannins. Drink this accessible Riserva within the next five years.

A very complex wine with a full body, this expresses each note of a Montepulciano Riserva with layers of fresh herbs, spice and balsamic stewed red berries and red stone fruit. The palate is well-structured with invigorating tannins and a rich quality.

Salcheto

View all from Salcheto
SalchetoSalco means "willow tree" in the ancient Tuscan language, an important plant for wine territories throughout history as its branches were used to bind the vines. Salcheto is the name of the stream , which springs at the foot of the town of Montepulciano and winds through a valley where willows abounded. This stream is the boundary of the Salcheto organic and biodynamic estate, rooted in the historic district of Vino Nobile, in the southeast of the Siena province of Tuscany. The willow tree, a species that we continue to replant at the winery, also contributes to the winery's energy independence, is today prominently represented in our logo as part of our commitment to environmental sustainability.

As quite possible the most eco-sustainable winery in the world, the Salcheto winery produces wine leaving zero (negative!) carbon footprint. Since 2011, Salcheto has relied on full energy independence, becoming, probably, the first "Off Grid" winery, in the sense of being completely disconnected from traditional power-distribution network. Ultimately, the goal is to work in an environmentally responsible manner to create the greatest expression of quality and authenticity in their wines. With this in mind, Salcheto hopes to bring romance and passion to the science of fine winemaking, blending time-honored tradition with modern technology. It is a life challenge that they take very seriously in making high quality, ecosustainable Tuscan wines.
