Querciagrande IGT

Querciagrande IGT


Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT

The return of the beloved wine from Podere Capaccia, Querciagrande! The grapes for the Querciagrande originate from our Capannelle vineyard planted in 2007 on the southern facing slope.

Harvested late September to early October, the Sangiovese grapes are delicately selected berry by berry. The individual berries are dropped into the fermentation tank by gravity where the must will ferment for circa three weeks until the wine is completely fermented.

The must is pumped over throughout the maceration to allow for the optimal extraction from the delicate grape skins. The new wine is moved to another tank to complete the secondary malolactic fermentation while the skins are gently pressed. After the secondary malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is moved into the barrel room.

The Querciagrande is aged for 18 months in 300 liter French oak barrels, 30% new oak. The wine is the blended and aged another 6 months in 1500 liter traditional oak wine casks. The goal is to allow the oak aroma to marry perfectly with the rich fruit notes in the wine.
