CASTELLO TRICERCHI

Non in latera pro nos

Castello Tricerchi is a true gem, located in the north of Montalcino, which produces noble wine such as Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.  The Castle was built in the thirteenth century on the Via Francigena in Montalcino by the Altesi and completed in 1441 by the Tricerchi. It covers 6000 m2 and it is a typical example of a medieval castle with a fortified keep, decorated with motifs attributed to Baldassarre Peruzzi, a famous artist from the period.

 

Over the centuries, the castle has offered refuge and protection to pilgrims taking the Via Francigena to Rome. In the seventeenth century the chapel, which was originally situated within the walls was moved to the end of the avenue and devoted to the Virgin of the Veil. A fragment of the Virgin’s veil authenticated by a Papal Bull, is kept into the chapel. In 1982, the Tricerchi Castle was officially recognised as part of Italy’s historical and artistic heritage.

FEUDO RAMADDINI

Vignaioli a Marzamemi

The light white ground, the luxuriant vine, the incessant sun, the sea breeze carried by the imposing wind. In the Ramaddini vineyards, which slope gently from the plateau of Noto towards the sea of ​​Marzamemi, the link with the past is reconstructed through cultivation with the traditional sapling method and with the most modern counter-espalier farming method.

 

The influence of two seas, the Mediterranean to the south and the Ionian to the east, whose saltiness is laid on the vines by the wind favors the enrichment and ripening of the grapes. The fertility of the basically calcareous soil that hides a substrate of lava due to the presence of volcanoes in the area is also decisive.
