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.

A fresh and flavorful 2015 Chianti Classico with plums and red cherries. Chocolate and cedar undertones. Medium to full body. Round tannins. Fruity finish. Drink now. ~92 JS
