Led by Michele Minelli since 1997 and producing wine for over 30 years, Salcheto is not only a representation of Tuscany’s rich heritage but also a pioneer in the construction of a future of environmental sustainability.
Located 450 metres above sea level, Salcheto is the name of the stream which springs from the foot of the town of Montepulciano and winds through a valley where willows abound. This stream is the boundary of Salcheto’s organic and biodynamic estate, rooted in the historic district of Vino Nobile, in the southeast of the Siena province of Tuscany.Michele’s mission is to seek quality in both the vineyard and in the cellar, with unwavering respect to the purity and character of the grapes. Manual harvesting and sulphite-free vinification allow just that. In this “off-grid” facility, native yeasts and large tonneaux are the tools used to achieve the pronounced aromas and soft, elegant structure unique to each vintage.
