Rosso di Montepulciano
Rosso di Montepulciano is the baby brother to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. It is generally the product of younger vines or wines that do not make the cut for an individual producer's Vino Nobile. The wines are aged for a minimum of six months, as opposed to 24 months for the Vino Nobile.

Rosso di Montepulciano is more accessible in youth and can be a charming wine in its own right. It often provides great value for money. An average of 220,000 cases of Rosso are bottled per year, with that number varying widely based on the quality of the vintage and the subsequent need (or lack thereof) to declassify wines.
