The harvest 2013 of Nobile di Montepulciano had four stars out of a possible five stars, this means that it is the first Italian DOCG wine to “zero emission “.
This score was assigned to the extraordinary conclusion of the event “Anteprima del vino Nobile di Montepulicano”, the presentation of the new vintages that are preparing to go on the market.
The district of Montepulciano is the first in Italy to be able to certify the zero impact on the atmosphere of its wine production through the project ‘ Zero Co2 ‘ .
The goal is to reach neutrality by 2020 emissions of climate-altering gases, thanks to the use by the public or private good practices such as reforestation, use of photovoltaic panels, energy production from biomass -fired power plants.
