Freccia degli Scacchi Riserva 2010
100% Sangiovese. Sangiovese has always been known as the king of the red grapes rooted in the Torgianese area. In perfect symbiosis with the richness of this territory, Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG, one of the first DOCG in Italy, has been able to conquer and dominate the market. Inspired by this tradition, Terre Margaritelli created a 100% Sangiovese RESERVA. The maximum expression of the character of Sangiovese comes from its bright ruby color and distinctive floral notes of violet, accompanied by the scent of red fruit and raspberry. It is a powerful, elegant wine that will benefit from long ageing.

About the Vineyards

The Margaritelli vineyard is located in the center of Umbria and expands over 52 hectares. Established in 1870, the Margaritelli family had a vision to combine family tradition with innovation. It is for this reason that 22 hectares of the vineyard are dedicated to experimental vines, which are then used in a small testing laboratory to explore optimum wine making processes. From the rich clay soil and at an altitude of about 250 meters, the Margaritelli vineyard produces 50,000 bottles of four different Umbrian labels each year.
