Quarzo della Marronaia is a fresh and sparkling wine, delicate and with hints of fresh fruit, remembering a very light red wine, with shades of cherries, plums, blackberries and tomatoes.

The period of harvest is at the end of August. Harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are given in the cellar, with a soft pressing of the grapes. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature not exceeding 17 °.

In the first days of March, sparkling wine is made according to the Charmat method, the aging happen in steel tanks until the wine becomes sparkling.

    Our shipment of wines just arrived and we chilled the wine as soon as possible. We had tasted the sparkling white at the winery and loved it, so we thought we would take a chance on their sparkling Sangiovese. It was absolutely delicious! Light and crisp for a warm summer meal. I also have to comment on the packaging they use for shipping. All bottles arrived unharmed and I could see the styrofoam packing took any impact from the bottles. I highly recommend this wine and am now ordering another 12 bottles so they arrive when we are at the end of our supply.
