This farm, purchased by the Folonari family in 1971, dates back to 1300 and has 385 hectares of land, 90 of which are used for specialised vineyard cultivation and 15 of which are used for olive groves.

The Tenuta di Nozzole estate is located in the town of Greve in Chianti, in the heart of the Chianti Classico production area and offers guided tours and the opportunity to taste wines from all of the Folonari estates.

Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established viticultural area. The term classico is used in this way in several Italian wine regions (Orvieto and Valpolicella, for example), although Chianti is the most famous example.

Maceration is done with délestage and pump-overs in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 28 °C (82 °F).

Ageing is done in toasted French oak barrels (225 lt / 59,4 gal) with a 33% turnover for 10-12 months followed by bottle ageing for minimum 3 months.

To enjoy it at its best it is recommend to let the wine 'breathe' at least 15-30 minutes before serving in medium goblet glasses.
