At the end of August, harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are sent to the cellar. After a soft pressing of the grapes, vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature not exceeding 17 °C/63° F.

In the beginning of March, the sparkling wine is made according to the Charmat Method. The Charmat method is a sparkling winemaking process that traps bubbles in wine via carbonation in large steel tanks. This technique is also called metodo Italiano, the Marinotti method, the tank method, or cuve close..

DEDICATION

Quarzo della Marronaia was inspired by the women of La Marronaia for women all over the world. The name Quarzo, in English Quartz, historically represents the uniqueness of women. We chose to dedicate this Sparkling Rosé to the power, love, and light that emanates from all women. Also, starting from 2021 on we are cooperating with the local association Valdelsa Donna, a no-profit that helps women to fight breast cancer. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the association to continue supporting this amazing project.

    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.
