Tenuta Torciano's winery and winetasting strive to continue a traditional harvest system that has been passed down from father to son for 15 generations of Giachi. The locations of our vineyards in Tuscany, specifically in the Chianti region, are very fortunate because this region is one of a distinct few areas that produce among some of the best wines in the world. Location is important, and any wine connoisseur will tell you that a good wine is the result of the fruit from which it is produced.
Our harvests are completed entirely by hand, ensuring we choose the best bunches of grapes. The harvest begins with the white grapes Chardonnay Sauvignon, followed by the Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Trebbiano. Then, the harvest process will continue with the harvest of red grapes like Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Sangiovese, and through the Canaiolo.
Next, the grapes are now placed in baskets that will be taken to the cellar to be stripped, or separated from the raspberry
Then we begin with the white wines, and crush the grains in order to facilitate the extraction process of tannins and cultivate what is good in the flesh and peel of the grape. For red wines, grains are added as well but are then transported to special barrels for the fermentation process. Following the fermentation process, the contents are then transferred to wooden barrels, then French and American barriques to age in special woods.
We are pleased to offer our guest of enthusiasts and connoisseurs of fine wines the opportunity to view and experience wine-making in French and American oak barrels, controlled by stainless steel tanks to ensure the highest quality product. The time needed for the wine to mature in each barrel varies depending on the type of wine we are striving to produce. After this stage, the wine will be micro-filtered and bottled to begin the aging process
