Villa Trasqua is a winery located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, Italy. The estate has a long history, dating back to medieval times, and it was acquired by the current owners, the Del Vecchio family, in 1965. The winery takes its name from the 18th-century villa that sits at the center of the estate , which was built by the Grand Duke of Tuscany.
Villa Trasqua produces a range of wines, including Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and Super Tuscans. The vineyards cover 60 hectares and are situated at an altitude of 250-350 meters above sea level. The soil is a mixture of clay and limestone, which is ideal for growing Sangiovese, the primary grape variety used in the Chianti Classico wines.
The winemaking philosophy at Villa Trasqua is based on respect for the environment and the terroir. The vineyards are farmed organically and the grapes are hand-harvested to ensure the highest quality. The wines are made using traditional techniques, including long maceration periods and aging in large oak barrels. The result is wines that are elegant, balanced, and expressive of the terroir.
