The name comes from the number twenty in Italian thus giving a nod to our twenty years in the wine world. However depending on where you place the accent, the word also translates to ?winds,? which is a strong natural element at our Tuscan wine estate.
Barrel aging the best selection of our Sangiovese and Merlot in French oak for twenty months, followed by one year of bottle aging has resulted in a wine of impressive character and graceful complexity. This refined, beautifully balanced wine has the fruit, structure and depth to continue to develop and evolve for many years with careful cellaring.
With only 1,400 bottles produced for 2016, Venti is a special, limited release wine and is available exclusively from the winery.
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.
