Castello Tricerchi extends over 400 hectares on the northern slopes of Montalcino. 13 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of Sangiovese Grosso , the vines which produce Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino . The Castle of the Tricerchi family , completed in 1441, dominates the property and is now the home and headquarters of the Tricerchis’ direct ancestors, the Squarcia family. 

The vineyards are planted at 290 m on the northern slopes of Montalcino, which are characterised by cooler temperatures and marked thermal variations.  The estate is comprised of 13 hectares of vines, all of them Sangiovese Grosso, which surround the castle in 7 separate plots cultivated using spurred cordon and guyot: La Vigna del Velo, whose name derives from the chapel devoted to the Virgin of the Veil, the Vigna del Castello, the Vigna Sant’Anna, the Vigna del Lago, the Vigna dei Cipressi, the Vigna del Piano and the Vigna Nuova.  The soil composition is a homogeneous limestone clay and sand. The vines are almost exclusively north facing which allows for uniform ripening.  Castello Tricerchi farms according to organic principles with great respect for nature. 

Tasting Notes

Vibrant ruby in the glass with a complex bouquet of ripe cherry, chocolate, tobacco, spicy and floral notes.  The palate is structure and layered with flavours found on the nose; the tannins are ripe and smooth, the fruit is supported by juicy marked acidity.

Method

Made from 100% Sangiovese grown at altitudes of 290m with West-North West exposure; the grapes are hand harvested at the end of September/beginning of October and are carefully sorted before fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a long maceration period in temperature controlled stainless steel.  The wine ages for 30 months in Slavonian oak casks of 15 to 20hl and a further 8 months in bottle minimum.
