An ancient manor
On the road that comes down from Montalcino towards Buon Convento, towards the northern edge of the township, there is an ancient manor. It is not a castle but a very well-preserved and extremely fascinating fortified farmhouse. Today it is the base of operations for the Castello Tricerchi estate which for four generations has been in the hands of the Squarcia family of Rome.
For many years the estate was run by a Chianti cooperative that needed to have a Brunello wine on its product list. More recently Tommaso Squarcia, a young pharmacy student, decided to manage the estate himself. With great enthusiasm he embarked on this wine adventure with the goal of raising the quality level of the estate’s wines. The results of his endeavor are evident in this Brunello 2011, a year that in the cooler areas of the appellation produced good results.
