Description

Il Convento is a line of wines from the winery Gattavecchi in Montepulciano. Montepulciano is a medieval and renaissance hill town in southern Tuscany.

The name ‘’Il Convento’’ refers to the former monastery of the Santa Maria dei Servi church. The monastery was built in the 13th century by the ‘’Padri Serviti’’ who have lived here until the 19th century.

The Gattavecchi family bought the monastery in 1958. In the underground caves the wines rest for more than two years.
