Chianto Classico Guarnellotto

This wine is our tribute to the ‘Guarnellotto’, a nobleman who in the Middle Ages devotedly defended this area out of passion for his vineyards.  The grapes used for this wine, Sangiovese and Canaiolo, have been carefully selected from those vineyards with the oldest vines and the best exposure.  This wine, with a traditional Chianti style, is also indicated for longer ageings, which makes it a perfect example of the tradition and winemaking history of the original area of production of the Chianti.

Chianti Classico

This wine is exclusively made from grapes grown in our 90 ha estate in San Sano, in the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti.  The uplands of San Sano have a homogeneous exposure both to the sun as to the wind.  This factor favors slow and regular maturation on all the vineyards which results in a high quality even before maturation begins.
