ANTICHE VIE – Chianti DOCG
The traditional production of my family, the wines with which my grandfather before and my father carried on the ancient profession of the winemaker, who in San Miniato has left traces of two thousand years old. It is Still produced today as it once was using only indigenous grapes including a small part of Trebbiano.
The daily wine of Tuscany.
My two Chiantis are composed largely of Sangiovese with varying percentages of Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, and Malvasia Nera.
Vinification & Maturation
My two Chiantis are composed largely of sangiovese with varying percentages of Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, and Malvasia Nera. The grapes are harvested separately in September and October, as the different varieties ripen, and thus the fermentation periods vary. They are carried out in lined cement vats, with very traditional 21-day macerations.
Chianti Antiche Vie matures only in vats, the only one of my wines not to see any oak. It is released after a brief ageing in the bottle, at one year of age.
