Our first vineyards were planted at high densities 20 years ago with selected vines suited to our unique soils and microclimate, and are pruned for exceptionally low yields.
The Chianti Classico region, in which the world famous Chianti Classico wine has been produced for centuries, covers an area of approximately 100 square miles (259 square kilometers) between the cities of Florence to the north and Siena to the south.
The soil and geography of this region can be quite varied, with altitudes ranging from 820 feet (250 meters) to 2000 feet (610 meters). It is a land of ancient traditions with old villages and monasteries, castles and fortresses. Over the centuries many spaces were cleared in the vast forests of chestnuts and oaks for the cultivation of vines and olive trees, an activity that progressively assumed major economic importance and established an international reputation.
Our first vineyards were planted at high densities 15 years ago with selected vines suited to our unique soils and microclimate, and are pruned for exceptionally low yields. All these for a single purpose: To achieve the best possible quality of grapes from this wonderful land.
Our cellars are elegantly simple and impeccably kept. We use the most modern technology where necessary to achieve quality and longevity, and aim to allow our wines to express the full richness and fascination of their unique terroir.
