Wine tasting notes

Ruby red in colour, Torrione opens with an intensely perfumed nose of wild red and black fruit, cherries and raspberries and spicy vanilla from the oak ageing. On the palate, it displays lovely weight with the oak adding polish and roundness to the structure of the Sangiovese.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2017) - 92 pts

This vintage is an IGT Toscana wine instead of a Valdarno di Sopra appellation expression. The 2017 Torrione is mostly Sangiovese with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blended within. This is a full and complete wine that embraces all the heat and dryness of the vintage, and it incorporates those well, without appearing too heavy or rich. You feel the 2017 vintage heat in terms of the plumpness and darkness of the fruit, but the results are never overdone. It offers beautiful density and succulence.
