History & Geography
La Ciarliana winemaking activity traces back to the passion Luigi Frangiosa inherited through his father, Santo Pellegrino, and that begun with his grandfather Luigi 50 years earlier, in the 60s’, when he initiated the grape growing activity. The first Vino Nobile di Montepulciano bottled vintage dates 1996. The vineyards, with a density of 5000 vines per hectare, have been planted following an in-depth geological and clone study; the terroir, the attentive care to the vines and the drastic selection of the grapes give to the wines their remarkable structure and body. The unique, deeply traditional style comes from the scrupulous respect of the Sangiovese’s inner characteristics.
