Tirrenico, Belguardo's new wave

Belguardo is proud to present Tirrenico 2016, a truly special wine whose sensory pleasures are evoked by the Tyrrhenian Sea.

With the appointment of Francesco Mazzei as President of the Maremma Wine Consortium, Marchesi Mazzei has further focused its attention on the family company’s Belguardo wine brand and its Maremma Toscana DOC controlled appellation wines.
Tirrenico Maremma Toscana DOC, formerly known as ‘Tirreno’, is Belguardo’s flagship wine.

Rarely have climate and the influence of the sea worked together as effectively as they did in 2016 to forge the character of an unforgettable wine. Sea breezes during the day and cool humidity at night, combined with long sunlight hours, led the grapes to perfect maturation. Hence the wine’s new name, Tirrenico, an homage to the sea that does do much to guarantee freshness, nuanced spiciness and full sapidity.

A carefully gauged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot generated, in the 2016 vintage, an intriguing balance between structure and drinking pleasure, between ageing potential and immediacy – very much in the style of Tirrenico.

The celebration of Tirrenico 2016 has been accompanied by a restyled label, more elegant, more exclusive, more sea-blue marine. The new label depicts the charmed place among the Maremma hills, skirted by the lower reaches of the Ombrone river, where Tirrenico is born.
