Torricella 2017

Toscana IGT

"Torricella, a historical label dating back to the time of my great-grandfather, today is mainly made from Chardonnay, and after ageing a few months in wood it is bottled one year after the harvest. The result is a wine of character with nice mineral notes and complex, that can be appreciated even after many years in the bottle".  Francesco Ricasoli.

Prevalently made from Chardonnay

Tasting notes

Straw yellow colour with golden reflections. Acacia honey, vanilla beans and delicate spices hints on the nose. Velvety and enfolding in the mouth with elegant acidity, which led to a beautiful and persistent finish. An excellent Tuscan wine to drink after a long ageing.
