The Castello Tricerchi Estate extends for 400 hectares on the northern side of Montalcino.
In the center of the propriety stands the medieval castle: completed in 1441 by the Tricerchi members of Siena’s oligarchy, is the current home and work place of their direct descendants, the Squarcia family.
The structure holds internally the cellars of vinification and aging, sited in the medieval dungeons of the castle, where the microclimate is naturally and no artificial conditioning is needed.
The current layout of the vineyards, completed in 1995 and exclusively planted in Sangiovese Grosso clones, draws an amphitheater of 7 different plots for 13 hectares. This position benefits of the unique microclimate and terroir of Montalcino, resulting in a perfect synergy delivering finess and elegance to the Brunello di Montalcino.
Farming follows the principals of the organic policy, not yet certified. Work in the field is mechanized as little as possible and vinification processes are developed naturally. The following aging in wood is a traditional passage in casks of Slavonian oak for 24/30 months.
Passion and love for land mark the values of the family as well as respect for nature and tradition.
