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.
Petit Verdot is a grape originating from the Médoc area in France, where it is used for the production of Bordeaux, and is also widespread in California. In Italy, the Petit Verdot is able to express itself in a truly excellent way in Tuscany, in the Livorno Maremma, in the Grosseto Maremma and in the Agro Pontino in Lazio. Petit Verdot is a very demanding grape for maturation and often its best potential is expressed far from the places of origin. Petit Verdot ripens late, and therefore offers excellent results in areas characterized by a warm climate, very sunny, constantly ventilated and with very little rainfall during the vegetative phase.
“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.
