Chianti Colli Aretini D.o.c.g.
At an average altitude of 250m above sea level: the best possible production conditions which, along with suitable agronomical choices (land partially subjected to minimal cultivation, and partially with permanent grassing; cordon training and short spur pruning; foliage control in summer; bunch thinning; leaf thinning; harvesting in several stages), guarantee the highest quality grapes.
Six and a half hectares of medium-texture alluvial, sandy and silty soil
The selected grapes are destemmed and gently crushed; vinification is carried out in medium-sized vats (50-100hl) with extended maceration (15 days) and délestage at intervals. Malolactic fermentation is carried out soon after devatting, a necessary step for the subsequent ageing (12 months) in French oak barriques (used for the second and third time). Lastly the wine completes its maturation with 12 months in the bottles.
