Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2013 Torcilacqua

Podere Torcilacqua is a small farm located in Badia a Passignano, in the municipality of Tavernelle Val di Pesa. Geographically it is about 400 meters high above sea level, and is well exposed for sunshine and ventilation.
The agricultural company insists for a total of about 20 hectares: 7 hectares of vineyard, 7 hectares of olive grove and the remaining ones in the woods. Among the different Terroirs of Chianti, the one at Badia a Passignano is one of the best ever. In ancient times, it was also called the zone of the 13th. Its natural tendency is to bring the grapes to perfect ripeness so that they would develop an alcohol content of more than 13 per year.

The vineyards of the Torcilacqua farm are located on the highest part of the hill, effectively separating the vineyards where the Antinori family cultivates grapes and then produce Tignanello and Solaia. The rest is done by the owners, who are also the agronomist and the oenologist, two Lombards, former classmates, to whom we certainly applaud.
