De’Ricci winery

In the wine Nobile’s heart of Montepulciano

History

The Ricci family was born in 1150; Palazzo Ricci, one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano, was commissioned by Cardinal Giovanni Ricci in 1534 by the best architect of the moment, the Sienese Baldassarre Peruzzi and finished being constructed in 1562. The Cantina De’Ricci was part of the project for the Palace, however it was built on a previous medieval structure; documents have been found in which it states it was built according to the ancient rules of the statutes of Montepulciano of 1337. In 1959 at the behest of the Marquis Giulio Ricci, the Cellar changed its name, and until today it was known as the ‘Cantina Redi’.

The actual family owners have decided to return to the Cellar’s origins and today again remember the Ricci Family, which has been one of the most representative of the town, for both what they have given to the wine and to Montepulciano.

Description

The De’ricci winery, located in the historic centre of Montepulciano and recognized as one of the most beautiful wineries in the world, it’s the beating heart that gives life to one of the most famous Italian wines, the Nobile wine.

The winery stretches between caves and underground tunnels dug underneath the so-called “Sasso” of Montepulciano, a tufaceous soil that with careful ventilation allows the winery to keep the wine at a constant temperature and humidity ideal for all the year.

Respecting the philosophy of great red wines and the terms defined for the aging in wood here we find rows of enormous Slavonian oak barrels, perfectly conserved, where lie thousands of hectolitres of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and other rows with dozens of tonneaux and barrique barrels made of quality French wood.
