Thirty years ago...
... became reality from the idea of a winery in Montepulicano. Over the years, a classic farm has developed into a high-quality and innovative winery. Since 1997 Michele Manelli has managed the Salcheto winery with passion, love and dedication.
The main focus...
... is to vinify terroir- and sangiovese oriented wines. The aromas are perfectly worked out in every single bottle and the drinking pleasure is brought to the point. The wines are then vinified:
- The grapes are harvested and selected manually
- native yeasts are used
- the wines are vinified according to the "Tuscan Governo" method, and
- matured in botte and tonneaux.
The winery name Salcheto...
... derives from the stream that rises at the foot of the town of Montepulciano and winds through a valley with many pastures. A wine was also dedicated to the pastures. Salco means the pasture in the ancient Tuscan language and is an important part of the history of Tuscan winemaking. The branches were used to bind the vines.
The Sangiovese grape variety...
... is the symbol of the Tuscan terroir Montepulciano - like the Prince of Tuscany. This is how the vines and grapes are treated at Salcheto.
The bottle shape...
... is known under the name Bordolese Toscanella and is intended to commemorate the ancient history of Tuscan wine. It is also the lightest and most ecological bottle on the market. Salcheto is always concerned with history, innovation and quality.
