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.
Intense, ruby red in color, our Sei 2016 has explosive aromas of cinnamon and coffee perfectly intertwined with red fruit such as blueberries and cherries. The wine is warm and balanced in the mouth with sweet gentle notes, soft tannins and a fine underlying acidity that is characteristic of the wines from our organic estate.
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.
