Add To Cart


Il Tocco is the grand cru of the estate. This wine, one of the first IGT Super Tuscans, was created in 1983 as 100% Sangiovese and is now a pure Merlot. The way this wine has evolved over the years is the result of the Pinzauti’s family’s experiment that was as daring as it has been successful, and has given this wine its distinctive personality. It has a “touch” – because that is what tocco means – a touch of sober elegance, and a “touch” of unusual aromas and harmonious roundness, that respect tradition while exalting the great potential of the Chianti Classico terroir. Fermented in 30-Hl wooden vats, the wine ages in new oak barriques for 18 months, and is then aged in the bottle before release. It is a highly structured wine that has a deep ruby-red color with purple highlights, with spicy aromas of ripe fruits and jam, and a warm, soft flavor. Only 3,500 bottles produced.
