Nestled amidst the esteemed domains of Antinori and Avignonesi, Tenuta Calonica showcases a distinctive dual essence. The property unfolds with two distinct personalities, seamlessly divided between the esteemed Nobile Montepulciano and Cortona wine regions.
This facet encompasses 18.86 hectares of Sangiovese grapes dedicated to the prestigious Vino Nobile DOCG. The clayish soil, interspersed with sandy outcrops, gives rise to wines that, in their youth, exhibit robustness and structure, boasting rich colors and aging potential. With the passage of time, these wines evolve into elegantly refined expressions, perfectly suited for the grandest of occasions.
The Cortona personality unfolds across 14.28 hectares within the Cortona DOC denomination. This dynamic zone is characterized by the cultivation of predominantly international varietals such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sangiovese. Notably, Syrah and Merlot thrive in the clayish limestone terroir, resulting in powerful yet nuanced wines. The wines crafted from these vineyards leave an indelible impression, appealing to the discerning palates of even the most sophisticated connoisseurs. Tenuta Calonica’s Cortona personality is a testament to the estate’s commitment to innovation and excellence.
