Area of Production:
Located in central Italy along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany is home to some of the world’s most notable wine regions. Toscana IGT is the most famous – and the most commonly used – of Italy’s Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) titles. The geographical region it indicates is, in short, Tuscany.
Toscana IGT wines can be made in any village in any of Tuscany’s 10 provinces.
Merlot – Sangiovese wines are made from two grape varieties extensively grown and widely appreciated in Italy. Sangiovese is internationally renowned for its well-balanced structure and savory flavors.
Sangiovese almost always plays the dominant role in the blend, with Merlot used to soften the wine’s texture and make it more approachable in its youth. Merlot also adds fruitiness and juiciness to the blend, complementing Sangiovese’s more savory and herbaceous qualities.
With each vintage of the acclaimed Private Reserve Sangiovese and Merlot, the Winemaker chooses the best lots from our vineyards in central tuscany, each of which demonstrate remarkable expression of terroir. Torciano’s extraordinary collection is the result of a significant and decades-long relationship between viticulture and winemaking.
