Grape Variety

90% Sangiovese 10% Merlot

Vinification Details

The grapes were removed from their stalk and lightly pressed before being macerated for 10-15 days in stainless steel vats. During this phase the wine underwent alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. A prolonged maceration with the skins gives to the wine complex aromas and a fruity scent

History

Piccini's story began in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, who owned only 7 ha of vineyards in the Chianti area. Even today, Piccini is still 100% family owned by Mario and Martina Piccini who mark the 4th generation of the family. Piccini is situated in Castellina in Chianti and it is one of the biggest player in Tuscany.

Regional Information

Chianti Classico is a land of ancient traditions that was civilized in remote periods first by the Etruscans, who left many traces of their activity in the wine sector, and then by the Romans. The characteristics of the climate, terrains and altitudes have made Chianti Classico a region that excels in the production of premium wines. Rows of vines alternating with olive orchards are a characteristic feature of the Chianti landscape
