Vineyard: Selected Chianti vineyards with sandy, clay and calcareous soil.


Vinification: Traditional vinification: mature grapes are harvested from vineyards and crushed almost immediately. Afterwards the grapes are poured in large inox tanks for fermentation. The primary fermentation evolves at a controlled temperature of 23-24°C. When the primary fermentation is perfect, the wine is filtered and stored at constant temperature in Slavonian oak casks for a minimum period of 24 months.
