Method & Production

The vineyards for this Chianti Classico are located in the municipality of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, in the northern area of Chianti Classico, about 15 km south of Florence. The vineyards, all in the hills, are located at an altitude of 220-300 meters above sea level and are exposed mainly to the south. 

The fermentation process usually lasts for 15 days, at a controlled temperature, in open-air tanks. The grapes are inoculated with selected indigenous yeasts. The wine ages in cement vats for 12 months before bottling.
