Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Torrione is exception and a very reasonable value. It opens with elegant richness and soft tones of black cherry, licorice, spice and dark leather. The style is opulent and confident for this mostly Sangiovese-based wine."
93 Points

"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?"
93 Points

"Rich and dense, yet firmly structured, delivering cherry, rhubarb and currant flavors accented by tobacco and underbrush notes. The tannins are assertive now, supporting a long and spicy finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2015 through 2024."
91 Points

"Good full red. Redcurrant, raspberry jam, faded flowers and charred oak on the nose. Sweet, intense and rich, with ripe red cherry jam and spicy oak flavors saturating the mouth. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and outstanding persistence. In a ripe style, but with good definition and cut."
91 Points

Learn About Sangiovese

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. Sangiovese re...
