Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established viticultural area.

It is made with Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine which is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy.The south facing vineyards and their natural amphitheatre shape allow the grapes to ripen fully.

Fermentation is done in stainless tanks which takes places for over two weeks, with the cap punched down twice a day, extracting tannins from the skins.

Wine is then racked into 225 litre French oak barriques for 24 months before bottling and matured in bottle for a further six months before release.
