The Castello Tricerchi estate extends for 400 hectares on the north side of Montalcino.

The current layout of the vineyards, completed in 1995 and planted exclusively in Sangiovese Grosso clones, designs an amphitheater of 7 different plots for 13 hectares. This location benefits from Montalcino’s unique microclimate and terroir, which translates into a perfect synergy that gives the Brunello di Montalcino finesse and elegance.

Agriculture follows the principles of organic farming, not yet certified. The work in the field is mechanized as little as possible and the winemaking processes develop naturally. The subsequent aging in wood is a traditional passage in Slavonian oak barrels for a minimum of 24/30 months. Passion and love for the landmark the values of the family as well as respect for nature and tradition.
