Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose reveals beautiful notes of small red fruits, spices and a light note of goudron, to embellish the olfactory profile. On the palate it is full and balanced, with mature and well-developed tannins, of great persistence.

Area of Production:
Scansano’s viticultural origins date back to Etruscan times, and the quality of the local wines has been documented for centuries. This quality is largely due to Scansano’s particular mesoclimate, itself created by a combination of factors.
The official viticultural zone covers a roughly square area about 25 kilometers (15 miles) across, topped and tailed by two rivers, the Ombrone in the north and the Albegna in the south. Scansano village itself lies towards the north of this area, just a few miles away from the Ombrone.
The Sangiovese grapes are born in the beautiful 12-hectare vineyard, with 20-year-old vines and others that are younger. The harvest begins in October and the vinification is done in steel tanks with maturation for a period of 12 months.
The refinement of the wine in the bottle continues for six months. This is an elegant and well-structured red, capable of satisfying the palate both in the short and long term.
“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.
