Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Tuscany, Italy From the Greve district in the northern portion of the Chianti Classico DOC, south of Florence in Tuscany. 105 acres of vine are planted at altitudes ranging from 1,150 to 1,480 feet in Verrazzano’s limestone-rich soil. Though present in warmer, southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, northern portion of the district. The soil here is extremely lean and stony (43% lime, 29% clay, 28% sand). Fertilization is entirely organic.
