It don’t get more natural than this

Above: Patrizia and Dora of Sanguineto, producers of a natural, traditional-style Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

I’m posting today from Bolgheri, where I’m visiting a few wineries. I can’t get online but for a minute: no wifi or other connection, just a shared computer at the hotel’s front desk. But I wanted to share these pics snapped day-before-yesterday at the Sanguineto winery in Acquaviva (Montepulciano). Ben and I had a blast tasting with the girls and their wines are fantastic.

More later…

  1. Ciao AC

    Dora and Patri are a hoot, and Aquaviva is a little bit of Paradise tucked away in the beautiful province of Tuscany. I import Sanguineto for the West Coast and it sells well in LAX, but I’m looking for a retailer in the SFO/SJ area. Got any suggestions? Let me know please at

  4. I came across your article while researching natural wines before a trip to Montepulciano and once there, hunted down this wine and winery. The first wine shop I went to in Montepuliciano chuckled when I was looking for them. “Not many tourists know about this! We are very proud of them.” Turns out only two shops in town sold it, the one i was standing in (which was sold out) and one other, which only had three bottles left!

    Since it was a wedding that brought me to Italy, the group wanted to tour a winery so I suggested Sanguineto. We had a fabulous time, the ladies are a hoot. The wine is absolutely delicious.

    Sanguineto is imported to the east coast through Boston. I don’t have the importer info with me right now, but I’ll post again so that those who would like can track it down.

    Thanks for the article — it really made for a special time on my trip!

  5. Sanguineto wines can be found in New York at Chambers Street Wines.

    Have not found a vendor in the SF area yet.

    Seems like something Kermit Lynch would carry.
