Antico Colle


Giuseppe and Andrea

A genuine Nobile di Montepulciano.
 
Located at 300-400 m above sea level in the heart of the green vineyards of Montepulciano’s Vino Nobile wine-growing area. Three generations of the Frangiosa family have dedicated themselves to the cultivation of their vines. The underlying philosophy motivating the staff comes from a love of, and a passion for, the winemaking profession.
“Genuineness” is the motivating force behind the production of a certain type of wine.
