Torrione is made mainly from pure Sangiovese grapes, both those that come from historic vines of the 70s and ones more recently planted with high density. The yield per plant is notably restricted allowing a concentration of all the noble components of the grape, fundamental for the full-bodied character of this wine.
"An aromatic Torrione with violets, berries and spices. Hazelnut aromas as well. Full body, with pretty tannins and a delicate fruity finish. Nicely integrated tannins. Always beautiful. Better after 2014 but why wait?"

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more.
