My family has been producing wine for over a hundred years in full respect of the most ancient tradition of Chianti, cultivating the small fields around the old house located in the beautiful valley of Cecione and in the Conca d’Oro of Panzano. The vineyards are fortified and enriched with infusions of propolis, nettle and sowing of various herbs such as rocket, clover and broad bean. This Chianti Classico is made from Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes and ages in barrels for 8 months. I would like to dedicate this wine to my parents (on the label in a 1975 photo), to the family, to my daughter Allegra and to thank our collaborators and all those who appreciate our wines.
