The Quercecchio Winery, five generations of passion for Brunello di Montalcino
The Quercecchio Winery is one of the area’s historical Brunello di Montalcino cantinas and is well worth a visit to enjoy not just its panoramic location, but its wines as wellThe Quercecchio estate has a long history and documents mentioning it as a “convent with fields” belonging to the Monte Oliveto Maggiore monastery date to the late 14th and the late 17th century.
The estate spreads over 230 hectares of woodlands, fields for pasture, crops, olive groves and vineyards.
The Sangiovese varietal, which is the grape used to make Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Vino IGT Rosso Toscano, is grown and cultivated here with great passion.
We have fine Grappa di Brunello distilled from grape pomace which guarantees a pleasant smoothness and a fresh and fruity bouquet.
From the olive groves on the estate, some with centuries-old trees, we also make an excellent quality extra-virgin olive oil that is light in flavour, free of acids, slightly bitter to the taste and boasts a nice intense green colour.
