Chianti

Chianti DOCG

The idea to produce a DOCG Chianti came about during the 2016 harvest. In reality, all of our wines are technically within the Chianti denomination, being more than 70% Sangiovese. However, we have always preferred to label them as IGT Tuscan Red  wine. Thanks to the interest of a few of our clients in the Chianti denomination, which is the symbol of Tuscany, we decided to try our hand at our own traditional Chianti- only Sangiovese grapes with local varieties like Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera and Bonamico. Our Chianti comes from a vineyard named “Raimondo”, which was planted in 2008. It wraps around the southwestern slope of almost all the historic buildings of the estate.
