Sei is the number six in Italian and there were many instances of this number coinciding with the production the wine. This single-vineyard wine comes from a special selection of grapes in a vineyard area measuring 6.66 hectares with a vine density of 6,666 vines per hectare. The tonneaux barrels we predominantly use hold 666 bottles of wine and our Laura was born in 6/6/46.
Sei is an intense, ruby red wine with notes of red roses, potpourri and underlying hints of oriental spices and mint. Expressive and full the mouth with punchy acidity, balanced out by accentuated tannins.
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.
