Winemaker Notes

Tricorno is very intense dark ruby with purple hues. The nose is elegant and well balanced. Light vanilla with balsamic notes enriched by hints of chocolate, leather and fruity notes of blackbarries and prunes. There is an impressive powerful body, rich, with soft tannins and subtle elegant lively texture. It has a long lasting, full, and tasty finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Shows black licorice, mineral and raisin, with hints of tar. Full-bodied, with a wonderful density and depth of fruit. A triumph for the region. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2011.

Conte Ferdinando Guicciardini
Ferdinando Guicciardini is a Tuscan wine and olive oil producer and, like other Tuscan producers who go back many generations, he am confronted every day with the legacy of centuries and the evolution of time. He believes that when love for your estate, vineyards and olive groves is transmitted generation after generation, it gets into your DNA. The heritage of Castello di Poppiano in Chianti Colli Fiorentini, represents the tradition of the Guicciardini since the XI century. Ferdinando Guicciardini felt the need to create something new, setting up from scratch the estate Massi di Mandorlaia in Morellino di Scansano, in Maremma (the southern coastal area of Tuscany). In both these estates his wife Annamaria (Titti) and he have given much of themselves with the desire that their love for our heritage can be transmitted to others through their products.

Barbaresco

View all wine

Often compared to Barolo but worthy of its own separate conversation, Barbaresco is home to the softer side of Nebbiolo. For a long time, consumers viewed Barbaresco as a more affordable alternative to the wines of neighboring Barolo, but advances in viticulture and resulting improvements in quality have allowed this region to build a superior reputation all its own. With a warmer, drier, and milder climate and compact, fertile soils, the wines here are powerful yet soft, fruit-forward, and elegantly perfumed. Barbaresco needs some time to mature before being ready to drink, but less so than Barolo, and the typical bottle is best enjoyed between five and 15 years from the harvest.

Barbaresco wines are highly aromatic and complexly flavored, with notes of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, and spice. Bottle aging can add more savory characteristics of iron and tar, as well as dried orange peel. The modern style of Barbaresco relies on new oak to add flavor and soften the texture for early drinking, while more traditional versions aim to highlight the purity of the Nebbiolo grape by using large, neutral oak vessels.

Nebbiolo

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it is at its best in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo is a finicky grape, and needs a very particular soil type in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, it often fails to show the captivating aromas for which it is so beloved, but some success has been achieved in parts of California.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best produce. The region is famous for its white truffles and wild boar ragu, both of which make for excellent pairings with Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you love Barolo and Barbaresco but can’t afford to drink them every night, you can try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo. But Piedmont’s best-kept secret is the northern part of the region, where outstanding earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) are produced in Ghemme and Gattinara.
