||Altitude: 280-480 m. a.s.l. Exposed South/South-West, the hillside is arranged in an amphitheatre conformation characterised by cool winds.
||The soil that distinguishes this wine is characterised from its formation, originating from the Chianti massif, by a high level of compact limestone stoniness resting on a sandstone base. This type of soil restrains the vigour of the plant, lengthens the vegetative cycle and enhances the structure of Chianti.
||From Mid-September to mid-October. The Sangiovese grapes, meticulously hand-picked with the selection of the best bunches.
||The Sangiovese grapes are destemmed and vinified in stainless steel tanks. Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place at 24-27 °C with maceration on skins for 15-20 days.
||36 months' ageing in large wooden barrels, with small percentages of wine aged in barriques.
