This wine takes its name from the homonymous grape of which it is composed and is produced only in the Monogram TT line with the best selections of Sangiovese from the company’s vines. Vinified with long maceration on the skins, it is refined and aged for over a year. The color is an intense ruby red, with slight garnet reflections. The nose has pleasant hints of violets and berries, a slight spiciness of the wood. This is a full-bodied wine, with enveloping and mellow tannins. Fine and elegant aftertaste.

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.
Sangiovese is the most cultivated black grape variety in Italy, with a vineyard area equal to 11% of the national total. Sangiovese is grown from Romagna to Campania and is the most widespread grape variety in Tuscany.
Sangiovese is part of the composition of many wines, some of which are well known such as Carmignano, Rosso Piceno, Rosso Conero, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano, Sangiovese di Romagna, and many others.
“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.
