Product description

In the production of our Chianti Classico we use our senses. To ensure top quality, the grapes – Sangiovese and Merlot – are picked by hand into small baskets. Before de-stemming, the grapes are sorted by hand yet again. The hand and eye are the best instruments when ensure highest quality. The grape juice is fermented and macerated in big steel cisterns with no added yeast. After pressing, the Sangiovese is matured in botti, larger Italian barrels, and the Merlot in barriques, French 225 litre barrels. After 16 months it is time for the final blending, thereafter the wine is bottled and stored until ready to drink. We taste the wine regularly during the whole process and in this part of the winemaking we rely on our tastebuds and our sense of smell.
