Two vines undoubtedly with superb properties of adaptation to many terroirs, considered by many persons of our territory a complement of the Sangiovese in the Chianti Classico. For us, defined as integralists, it is different. The Sangiovese in our wines must be in purity as these two vines, being together in the vineyard, must “live together” in the bottle. The vineyard is located at approximately 400 meters above sea level, with a medium-textured very rocky soil that is South-East facing. It is generally harvested in late October when the Cabernet is fully ripe and over matured. Picking two varieties together in the same grape harvest process, despite there being two different ripening periods, generally in the one month, allows us to achieve a wide bouquet. Cabernet Sauvignon produces more austere and elegant notes which give the wine superior development over time, therefore with an optimal propensity to aging. maceration and fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats after which the wine is aged for 12 months in first- and second-stage french oak barriques.
