    Our wine cellar

    Our cellar

    While fully ripened and healthy grapes are essential to obtain an optimum product, the wine cellar also represents an equally delicate phase of the wine production. The grapes of each vineyard are harvested and processed separately. The fermentation, using indigenous yeasts, takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. After the racking, the malolactic fermentation continues in cement or wooden containers.

    Sangiovese Chianti Classico

    The following phase, perhaps the most delicate, is the blend of the Sangiovese Chianti Classico that, with a provenance from four different vineyards, presents characteristics and aromas that are markedly different from one another.

    Depending on the vintage, we try to emphasize the right blend by letting one or more particular vineyards take precedence. The refining of the wine takes place in both cement containers, oak barrels, “tonneaux” and smaller wooden barrique barrels.
