Torre a Cona

We've done the hard work so you don't have to

Torre a Cona is perhaps visually our most impressive estate. Owned by the Rossi di Montelera family the 18th-century villa dominates the surrounding vineyards and olive groves.  With the exception of the impressive twelfth-century tower, the buildings were razed and then rebuilt by the Rinuccini family in the 16th century.  In any event, it’s terribly grand and today one wing has opening as a hotel of suitable pomp. 

Torre a Cona’s 20 H under vine are scattered throughout the estate and are all at high altitude (> 500 metres).  Sangiovese holds sway but there are parcels of Colorino, Merlot, Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia Bianca.  The Chianti is a blend of Sangiovese with a bit of Colorino from older vines that adds a lovely layer of black fruit.  It benefits from a relatively short maceration in stainless and shows red and black cherry, blueberry and a hint of tomato leaf. The 'Badia a Corte' Riserva is 100% Sangiovese and sports a fulsome structure with an earthy, tannic backbone. The wines are superb and the estate is well worth a visit.
