Il Nibbo

Production area: 

Magliano in Toscana / Pereta near Scansano


Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese are the main components of this blend and, depending on the vintage, Petit Verdot and other varieties can be added.


Nibbio’s character is particularly balanced. It takes its strength from a huge density and a natural sweetness of the fruit. Its final is soft and, still young, Nibbio is well structured, without giving up its ageing potential.

Sensory analysis: 

On the nose, typical aromas of Sangiovese ripen red fruit predominate, together with a strong aroma of prune. The salty-mineral note, so typical of Poggio Nibbiale, is well evident also in Nibbio. Il  Nibbio is a wine of the world. It joins its specifically regional aroma with the character of modern and international wines.


Selective hand-picking, destemming followed by maceration with regular pumping. Traditionally, it is pressed with a piston press. Follows an aging of 24 months in Tonneaux of French oak and then 6 months in bottle. Through a regular racking, the wine is continuously clarified and it can develop softly.

The terroir: 

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes come from the oldest vines of Poggio Nibbiale. This southwestern location overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. Both the soil and the air are characterized by a high minerality that influences the wine character.

Service temperature: 16°C – 18°C

Aging potential: 5 years and more

Production: ca. 6.000 bottles

Special recommendation: 

Game and poultry, but it is also perfect  with cheese or as “wine for a bbq”, a special companion.


This wine is pleasant also when young and it  doesn’t need to be aerated. 

Bottle Size: 0,75 L, 1,5 L, 3L, 5L
