Description

The Quercecchio Winery is one of the area’s historical Brunello di Montalcino cantinas and is well worth a visit to enjoy not just its panoramic location, but its wines as well. The Quercecchio estate has a long history and documents mentioning it as a “convent with fields” belonging to the Monte Oliveto Maggiore monastery date to the late 14th and the late 17th century. The estate spreads over 230 hectares of woodlands, fields for pasture, crops, olive groves and vineyards. The Sangiovese varietal, which is the grape used to make Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Vino IGT Rosso Toscano, is grown and cultivated there with great passion.

100% Sangiovese fermented in stainless steel tanks. It is then matured in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months with a resting period of 4 months in bottle. Rich and ripe notes of cherries and violets on the nose. The palate again is quite full bodied with nicely rounded tannins. A wine that can be enjoyed young or aged for up to five years. Great with poultry, game or mushroom dishes.
