Description

Quarzo Della Marronaia is a wine based on Sangiovese grapes, that we decided to develop starting from our 100% Sangiovese Rosè wine: The Rosa Della Marronaia.

The grapes come from the vineyard of Podere La Marronaia, on the hills of San Gimignano, in the heart of Tuscany.

The wine is fresh, dry and sparkling, delicate and with hints of fresh fruit, like cherries, plums, blackberries, and tomatoes. It remembers a very light red wine.

The period of the harvest is in September. Harvesting is done by hand, and after we bring the grapes immediately in the cellar

The wine is fresh, dry and sparkling, delicate and with hints of fresh fruit, like cherries, plums, blackberries, and tomatoes. It remembers a very light red wine.

The period of the harvest is in September. Harvesting is done by hand, and after we bring the grapes immediately in the cellar.

For its production, we use the Charmat Method: The Charmat method begins, like the traditional method, with the creation of an uncarbonated base wine. This wine is mixed with a measure of sugar and yeast (together called the liqueur de tirage), then put in a large stainless steel pressure tank, or autoclave. The yeast and sugar cause a second fermentation in the closed tank, which is held under pressure so the carbon dioxide from the fermentation is forced into the wine.

The second fermentation takes one to six weeks, after which the fizzy wine is immediately filtered and bottled. The dosage is added at bottling, usually to a brut level of sweetness (6–12 grams of sugar per liter).

Why the name is Quarzo Della Marronaia?

You have to know that the idea to create this wine was suggested by the women of our farm. When the Rosè sparkling was ready we saw its beautiful pink color and we immediately knew that women all over the world would appreciate this light, refreshing and pink wine. The name came up, the Quarzo ( in English Quartz) is a precious and pink stone, like women that are precious and have a pink soul like a Quartz.
