Vinification

All our grapes are picked by hand and collected in crapes to ensure that any rotten or unriped fruit is removed. Sangiovese is picked first usually around the end of september and the beginning of october to obtain the optimal rate between acidity and sugar contents. When the grapes arrive at the winery they are put through the destemmer and gently pumped in stainless steel vats, where alcoholic fermentation take place by natural yeasts. During fermentation the musts are pumped over one or two times a day for 18-24 days at 25°.

Maturation

Ageing is conducted in traditional big oak barrels of medium weight for 8 months, in order to ensure a slower ageing process as well as to preserve the characteristic aromatics and perfumes. Our wines are old fashioned Chianti in the best sense that speaks strongly of its origin and history, expressing the different conditions found in each vintage.
