  • Terroir
    Our Sangiovese grapes originate in the hills between the Provinces of Siena and Florence within the renowned Chianti area of Tuscany. This area is known for a warm, sunny growing season with substantial temperature differential between day and night. Such conditions produce flavorful, rich grapes. The vines that produce our Sangiovese grapes are grown in the “traditional Tuscany upturned” system, a variation on the “Guyot” system. The wines are positioned to point south, which contributes to the complete maturation of the fruit
  • Vinification
    The grapes were harvested upon full maturation during the middle of September. The wine was vinified using an average maceration time of 8 to 10 days. Temperature was controlled (28-29 °C) during the fermentation to encourage the release of attractive tannins and to develop a clear ruby color, while maintaining the rich fruit aromas characteristic of the Sangiovese grape
