Vinification Details

  • The grapes are removed from their stalk and lightly pressed before being macerated for 10 - 15 days in stainless steel vats. During this phase, the wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. This stage of the wine making process gives the wine complex aromas and a fruity scent.

History

  • Piccini's story began in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, who owned just 7 ha of vineyards in the Chianti area. To this day, Piccini is a family owned winery, now owned by Mario and Martina Piccini, who mark the 4th generation of the family. Piccini is located in Castellina in Chianti and is one of the biggest players in Tuscany.
