The grapes for the Il Guercio come from the unique "Mello", 700 metres above sea level in the Gaiole region of Chianti. Mash fermentation is carried out in concrete tanks, whereby 20% of the grapes are fermented complete with stalks and stems in order to preserve more structure and character. Very long maceration of up to 4 months. Subsequent maturing for 12 months in concrete tanks.

Our tasting note

In the glass, the Il Guercio sparkles a light, ruby red. With its elegant and harmonious fruit character, it stands out clearly from the classical styles. Fine red fruit flavours and perfectly integrated tannin. On the palate, the perfect combination of discrete Tuscan flavours and the elegance of a big Sangiovese.

The estate covers 100 hectares,consisting of wooded hills, idyllic little rivers and fertile plateaus, has about 20 hectares of vineyards.

Pure yeast and fining agents are a taboo in his cellar.
