VINEYARDS: Estate vineyards are located in Monti in Chianti, a “micro-area” of Gaiole in Chianti. This area, between 1,050 and 1,500 feet in altitude, offers the ideal range for ripening Sangiovese perfectly. Soils combine alberese (limestone) and galestro (schist) with clay. Wines are thus more elegant, intensely perfumed and darker in color than from other Chianti Classico areas.

AGE OF VINES: 10-25 years

WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in lined cement tanks. Aged for 11 months in traditional wooden vats, between 54HL and 56HL (called “tine,” made with French Allier oak) and lined cement tanks.

TASTING IMPRESSIONS: Suave and balanced; tart cherries, light pepper, baking spices

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Grilled lamb or steak; porcini risotto
