About him: in ancient Tuscan dialect the Marròca is the monster of the well, a mythological, dangerous and shy being who, hiding in the wells, kidnapped the children; not by chance his stories were told by mothers to their children so as not to let them approach the wells.
And just as this archaic monster hid in its cave, so the wine from which it takes its name "hides" from the air; in fact immediately after the destemming-crushing the must undergoes a cold decantation that varies between 12 to 72 hours (depending on the turbidity of the solution) and that allows to obtain a must with noble lees. A spontaneous fermentation is then performed using a technique called self-saturation with a drained tank; this particular technique allows to widen and enhance the aromatic spectrum of Trebbiano, the main grape of this wine.
Thus a wine with an intense straw-colored color is born, the nose is multi-faceted and elegant and the herbaceous and floral fragrances are well perceived with light notes of fresh fruit, in the mouth it's more vibrant than the previous year where stands a decisive freshness and minerality with a bewitching citrine final.
