"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.

Torricella, Toscana Igt Distinctive traits: fresh, complex, with intense minerality
The vineyard, located at more than 400 meters above sea level on the Macigno del Chianti (Arenaria), plus the unusual combination of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and the maturation of 9 months in wood on the lees, gives this wine its exclusive personality of a great Chianti Chardonnay.
Harvest: grapes have been selected and hand-picked on September 2017 Ageing: 9 months in tonneaux (20% new) on the lees with frequent batonnage Botttling: October 19 2018 Alcohol: 13%
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.
