Our approach to making wine is the same as for the paintings and sculptures we – Roberto and Rodolfo – create in our studio in Florence: respecting the tradition, looking for quality, and then with modern techniques creating something new!
The resulting wines are modern classics that best reflect the place where we are grown up … We invite you to join us and learn about Torre Alberghieri!
Our ’Retro Chianti’ offers the balance, elegance and fascination that those who grew up in this wonderful countryside still remember. Sorbetino is the ’gentleman’ among our wines.

The thoroughbred of Torre Alberghieri! We have decided to dedicate a small part of our production (300 bottles) to this Super Tuscan wine.
Born from a meticulous selection of the bunches obtained from the oldest vines (35 to 45 years old) of our estate. Our idea is to present the greatest grape variety of Tuscany not as an ‘aged man’ but as an ’adolescent’ – full of energy and inspiration. An athlete, an artist, a poet …
The color confirms it – intense ruby red still with some hints of purple. On the nose it unleashes ‘Morello’ cherry, withered red rose and rare beef. Then it creates a frame of rosemary, cinnamon and clove on a ferrous background. On the palate it presents surprising silkiness and unexpected balance! It’s dry, full and round with a gentle acidity and tannin. Its accentuated minerality and the finish with returns of ‘Morello’ cherry and rosemary makes it triumphant!
