Il Marzocco

Toscana I.G.T. Chardonnay 2022

In 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.


100% Chardonnay


16th - 24th August


Whole bunch press and cold decanting for approximately 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by the yeasts selected from our pied de cuve. Pied de cuve is the first batch of grapes that is harvested in advance to select the yeasts naturally present on the skins. These will become the basic yeast for the fermentation of the grapes, which will be harvested later. This process enhances the link between the wine and its vineyard, thus sealing its sense of place.
