At Tuscany’s southwest edge, due south of Arezzo, lies the Montepulciano region, where Tenuta Torcalvano is located. At 300 meters in elevation, the soil at Tenuta Torcalvano is rich in clay, and slightly skeletal. High vine density, low average yields and later October harvests combine to produce grapes with concentration, complexity and a mature, balanced ripeness. The wine is fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and undergoes maceration on the skins to give it a rich color. It is matured in traditional large oak casks and in bottle before release.
