Vinification Details

  • The vines are situated on well-exposed hills, trained prevalently by the Guyot and Cordon systems, on medium density soil of Tufo and Alberese, the two typical soils in the Chianti area of Tuscany. The grapes are picked between September and October, in the correct state of ripeness. These are then vinified using the red wine method, with careful checking of temperature and quality of maceration. The wine is aged for a number of months in tank before being bottled.

History

  • The Chianti region is complimented by a mild climate, beautiful landscapes and fertile soil where the original grapes used were cultivated by the Etruscans and developed into the Chianti wine which has become famous around the world. The Chianti region is complimented by a mild climate and beautiful landscapes, crossed by gently rolling terraced hills, valleys and rivers. The Sangiovese grape used in Chianti, it seems, has been cultivated by the Etruscans, an ancient population who settled in Tuscany. Today, Chianti is now one of the most well know red wines around the world.

Regional Information
