Simple and beautiful Chianti made the old, natural way from vines planted on the high elevation rolling hills of Arezzo, Siena, and Florence on the foot of Pratomagno mountain and in front of the Chianti hills. A blend of indigenous grapes, including 90% Sangiovese and 10% a blend of Canaiolo, Colorino del Valdarno, and Ciliegolo. The soil structure is loose and rocky. Some vineyards are 30-40 years old and others are 6-7 years old. The farm is organic since 1985 and controlled by ICEA (grassing, fertilization of faba bean, green manure, defense with copper, sulfur, and propolis). The wine making is traditional and simple: soft pressing and destemming of the grapes, with low doses of sulphites and native yeasts. The fermentation is for 8-10 days with repeated pumping-over the must and the maturation in steel tanks. The fermentation takes place outside without temperature control. The wine is one year from harvest and the refining is for 6-8 months before release. Endowed with a rich ruby color, a fruity perfume, and intense flavors of red fruits with a lively energy. A joy to drink!
