Bacco Wine & Spirit, LLC - Martoccia
Located in a land rich in farming tradition, Martoccia produces wines of extraordinary elegance. The Martoccia vineyards extend over the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of about 250 meters above sea level. From this location, vineyards are exposed to the sun for the entire length of the day and are likewise protected from the cold northern winds. At this average altitude, the grapes acquire the maximum expression of their fragrance and ripening. The land, rich in stone, guarantees excellent permeability and consequent drainage of rainwater. Each hectare holds about 5,000 strains of the best selections of Sangiovese.
Martoccia adopts cultivation methods that favor low yields, which are well below the production regulations. This is a difficult, but effective choice in order to obtain a great wine.

In the cellar, oak barrels and barriques give unmistakable aromas and enveloping fragrances to each wine.

The passion with which the Martoccia family follows every stage of production, from fermentation to aging, is a guarantee of quality and authenticity.
