Il Marzocco

Toscana I.G.T. Chardonnay 2020


I n 1987, our winery was the first in Tuscany to produce a barrel-aged white wine, with grapes cultivated in Cortona’s foothills. Today the wine continues to be a trend leader with its vinification in a concrete egg, a terracotta jar and oak barrels. An elegant dynamic wine, it owes its name to a stone lion, symbol of wisdom and strength, which can be found in front of Palazzo Avignonesi in Montepulciano.
An elegant, dynamic and profound wine, Marzocco will enchant you with its explosive notes of fresh flowers such as acacia and ripe pineapple accompanied by intriguing nuances of vanilla. The palate is sumptuous and creamy with notes of elderflower, apricot and honey. The mouth is delighted by a vibrant, mineral finish.
