100% Sangiovese from Monti in Chianti
This wine's name means "Partridge eye" due to its garnet color with an amber edge. It is made from organically farmed, carefully hand-picked grapes planted in the best vineyards of the Chianti Classico region. The vines are 20-30 years old, situated on ideal southwest facing slopes at 250-270 meters above sea level. Soils consist of clay and limestone rock.
Bunches are carefully selected and left to dry in well-ventilated rooms. Fermentation with wild yeast and aging take place in small oak casks, which are sealed and kept exposed to the seasonal variations in temperature. The finished wine ages 8 years in cask and oak barriques.
