About the Wine

Villa Trasqua is not merely a wine, but an experience that takes root in the heart of Tuscany. Located within the prized Chianti Classico region, Villa Trasqua unites the traditions of this ancient territory with the innovation of a more worldly outlook for more than fifty years.

Following organic methods of production, from the grape-growing to the vinification process, was the challenge posed and won by Hans Hulsbergen who, since 2001, has transformed Villa Trasqua from an ambitious project to an elite winery with a global perspective.

With the arrival of Franco Bernabei, who made the 100pt 2016 Fontodi Flaccianello, Villa Trasqua has thankfully returned to the US with fresh wines and critical praise.

Blending & Aging: 92% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot.
24 months in 5000L Slovenian barrels.

Reviews

Plums, currants, dried blueberries, walnuts, and licorice on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Structured and polished. Delicious finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold. ~93 James Suckling
