Area of Production:
Located in central Italy along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany is home to some of the most important wine areas in the world. Toscana IGT is the most famous – and most commonly used – of the Typical Geographical Indication (IGT) titles in Italy. The geographical region it indicates is, in short, Tuscany. Toscana IGT wines can be produced in any area within the 10 provinces of Tuscany.
Malbech is a grape of French origin, very common in the Bordeaux area and arrived in Italy in the mid-19th century. The Malbech grape gives a ruby red wine with variable polyphenolic intensity. The nose has herbaceous notes, while the palate is not very tannic and not very fresh, but usually of good quality. Generally it is used in blends with Merlot, Gamay and Cabernet, more rarely it is found in purity.
“MONOGRAM TT” The new collection of Tenuta Torciano wines is born with the monogram TT, formed by the letters T and T in overlapping gold accompanied by other artistic motifs already present in the mosaics of the Siena Cathedral, the logo designed by Luciana Cilemmi in collaboration with Giulia Falciani, as a new brand to make the wines and products of the Tenuta Torciano winery recognizable, which in its 300 years has become one of the most recognizable wineries in the world.
