Villa Trasqua is a timeless universe in which a temple is where the classic becomes contemporary, and the future’s value comes from what has been learned from the past.
Trasqua is a land of ancient fortifications, castles, and outposts. Central to the disputes between Florence ad Siena, the cradle of Italian civilization, the two cities fought from the mid-13th century until the dawning of the 15th century when the City of Lilies took control.
A shared journey with enologist Franco Bernabei, a leading Sangiovese/Chianti Classico expert, brings the focus back to the vineyard and the organic vision of its vegetative microcosm, considered equal with a complex ecosystem in which every part, even the corpuscular, contributes to balancing the whole.
Consequently, Villa Trasqua began a mass selection process of the clones used in the vineyards and, at the same time, decided to use only native yeasts.
“A temple where the classic has become contemporary, and the future’s value comes from what has been learned from the past.”
