TERRESTRE

EVENT WINE
World Champion from Tenuta Torciano
Designed, studied and realized by the winemaker Pierluigi Giachi

The first release of our Terrestre, a line of Super-Tuscan wines tied to the great terroirs of our region, turned out to be a fantastic success. But, more encouraging to us were the impressions of the people who tasted the wine during the visits in my cellar. Their comments, the amazement I could read in their eyes while they sipped it, were the confirmation we are going in the right direction.

So we have doubled our efforts to produce an exciting Terrestre from the famous Montalcino Area. Pure Sangiovese from the stronghold of Brunello. A challenge? Yes, absolutely. And we think we have another winner for your pleausure.

In the 1970s, Tuscan wine producers began to experiment with foreign grape varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. By combining these with the Sangiovese grape, they created Super Tuscan wines.

 
 
 

The hills of Montalcino, having been formed in differente geological eras, present extremely variable soil characteristics, in both constitution and structure. The lowest areas consist of terrain created by the deposit of allubial material with an active stratum that is deep and quite loose, dating from the Quaternary Period. Further uphill, the terrain, enriched by fossil material, has a layer of soil formed by the decomposition of ancient rock, especially marl and limestone. The terrains are moderately sandy, rich in lime, mingled with areas of volcanic soil, but tending to be thin.

The climate is typically Mediterranean with precipitation concentrated in the months of May, October and November. In winter, snow is found above an altitude of 400 meters. Monte Amiata (1,700 meter) to the southeast represents a natural barrier that protects Montalcino from most climatic adversities such as sudden downpours and hail-storms. The strip of the hill of moderate altitude, where the greater part of the winemaking estates are situated, is not affected by fog, ice or late frost as are the surrounding valleys, while the normal, persistent winds ensure the best conditions for the health of the plants.

The fundamentally mild climate and the large number of days of serene weather during the entire vegetative cycle ensure the gradual and complete ripening of the grape clusters. The existence in the territory of slopes with different orientations, the pronounced modulations of the hills and the disparity between the low-lying areas and the higher districts, produce micro-climates that are diverse despite the relative compactness of the area.

 
 
 

TERRESTRE

The vintage 2014 was presented with a hot summer but throughout the year temperatures were maintained regular, with important rains in the month of May and June. Also, in the month of Sept, in Tuscany, at the beginning of the month have occurred of thunderstorms, creating discomfort during the step of harvesting the grapes but helping to make an overall great wine.

So with this great 2014 vintage of TERRESTRE we have crafted a small batch of the very best Sangiovese from our vineyards for your pleasure and as a tribute to our forefathers and their devotion to this soil.
