This limited release wine was crafted in honor of the 20th anniversary of the winery. It is an elegant, bold wine showcasing the best of our Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.
The name comes from the number twenty in Italian thus giving a nod to our twenty years in the wine world. However depending on where you place the accent, the word also translates to winds, which is a strong natural element at our Tuscan wine estate.
Glossy purple in the glass, the Venti 2017 is the colour of perfect blackberries ripe for the picking. The nose is heady, decadent, compelling - those blackberries are there in aroma too with morello cherry, almond and enticing sweet spice, cinnamon,clove and nutmeg.
The taste is exquisite, the wine translates only the positive qualities of this warm vintage, with exuberant ripeness, drenched in forest fruits, generous and mouth filling, sensual and velvety in texture. Tannins form an authoritative frame around the ample fruit and acidity ripples through, subtle but felt. A long and layered finish, scented with spice. Intensely drinkable.
With only 1,200 bottles produced for 2017, Venti is a special, limited release wine and is available exclusively from the winery.
At Querceto, we wholeheartedly believe great wine is made in the vineyard.
It's the reason we focus on those grape varieties that best express our terroir, like Sangiovese.
It’s also why we apply organic techniques for managing our 28 acres of vines, and focus on producing wines of high quality without chemical treatment and as little disruption as possible to the natural surroundings.
