Il Palazzone Lorenzo & Isabelle 2013 IGT Toscana

Rött vin från Toscana Italien

This wine is what is known as a Supertuscan; an IGT Toscana. Similar to the prototype Super Tuscans, Tignanello and
Sassicaia, the Lorenzo & Isabelle shows elegance, power, and illustrates the marriage of the new
and old world. It retains the terroir of Montalcino, with an international flair from Cab Franc and
Petit Verdot.

Robert Parker: Bright aromas of dark cherry and plum
The 2013 Lorenzo & Isabelle is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 45% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. This is the second release of the IGT Toscana wine, with the first release happening a decade ago. Despite the hearty nature of the French grapes involved in this blend, the Sangiovese component clearly takes center stage in terms of appearance and, to a good extent, on the bouquet. The wine opens to a dark garnet color and shows bright aromas of dark cherry and plum. The aromas veer closer to red or purple fruit tones instead of black fruit characteristics. Mild aromas of delicate spice and tobacco are achieved thanks to 34 months of aging in large oak casks. Only 6.400 bottles produced.

The current owner purchased Il Palazzone in 2000. For five years he researched and studied various Supertuscans before settling on a blend of his own. From the very beginning he knew that he wanted to make a wine to commemorate his parents. Lorenzo & Isabelle were their names and this wine was made to honour them and their marriage. The symphony of varietals and the harmony of the blend is a testament to the union between Lorenzo & Isabelle; the strength and elegance of Lorenzo and the sweetness and determination of Isabelle.

The first bottling of Lorenzo & Isabelle was the 2005 vintage, released in 2007.  Upon release this wine was considered to be one of the top 100 wines in Italy.. The second bottling of Lorenzo & Isabelle is the 2013 vintage, released in 2017 – ten years on.

The wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Le Due Porte vineyardsResponsible Agriculture
We are currently practising what is known as “agricoltura responsabile.”



Marco and Massimo make decisionsPrecision viticulture
Every week our consultant agronomer visits the vineyard in order to assess the particular conditions at Il Palazzone. He analyses factors that influence grape yield and quality (soil, topography, microclimate, vine health, etc.) and helps us to make the appropriate choices in the vineyards. Our vineyards vary so much in terms of terroir that we benefit from an individual approach. This way of working ensures that we never do unnecessary treatments.


Le Due Porte vineyardsNo chemical pesticides
The few treatments that we make in the vineyard are base metals that are allowed by the EEC directive 2092/91 that governs organic farming. We do not use sophisticated chemical compounds that are damaging to the environment and the ecosystem.


Bart cuts back excess foliage: July 2009By hand at any cost
Whenever possible we effect manual operations rather than anti-fungal treatments. For example we will choose to strip away vine-leaves by hand in order to give the bunches as much air as possible after rain in order to avoid grey mould rather than spraying the vines with an anti-botrytis treatment.

Opting for manual work rather than tractor intervention is always more expensive. However, “il vino si fa in vigna” – wine is principally made in the vineyard, not the cellar – and these results of these choices are evident in the final quality of our wines.


VineyardCultivating biodiversity
We are trying to reacquire the balance that is lost through the use of chemicals by avoiding them as much as possible and trying to replenish the soil and the ecosystem. You will see flowers, butterflies, ladybirds and earthworms in our vineyard!


Cover cropsCover crops : green manure
We have opted for organic fertiliser in the vineyards. Rather than using chemical fertilizers which pollute streams and groundwater, we plant cover crops – nitrogen rich leguminous plants such as lupins and fava beans – in alternate rows. These are then ploughed into the earth, enriching and fertilising the soil. This has the many advantages: it reduces erosion, improves water absorption and increases soil organic matter which enhances soil structure. It can also lead to increased soil carbon sequestration which has been promoted as a mitigation strategy to help offset the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.


Locally sourced chestnut postsVineyard posts
We use locally grown chestnut posts that do not need to be treated with preservatives as supports in the vineyard.
