Retromarcia is a Chianti Classico made from Sangiovese (100%) grapes (since 2010). A large proportion of the grapes come from vineyards consisting of shale (Galestro), limestone (Alberese) and sandstone (Arenaria-Calcare-Pietraforte), and are, on average, ten years in age. The vinification and maturation is reminiscent of a more traditional style Chianti Classico. The Italian word Retromarcia has come to mean more to us than its literal translation “to back up” or “to reverse”; ever since we arrived in Panzano, it has been our aim to produce intensely typical and expressive wines from Tuscany’s historic zone – Chianti Classico. With the name Retromarcia, we are emphasizing a return to the natural elegance and charm of Sangiovese.
Fresh and fruity, medium-bodied, well-balanced wine, with a nice structure, juicy acidity and a long finish.
