Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) This Chianti Classico comes from the continuous research of the diversity in our vineyards; the 50 different parcels that compose this wine have been vinified without any pumps, and aged separately in the new Fonterutoli cellar.

Winemaker's Notes

Hand harvested grapes undergo separate temperature-controlled fermentation for 15-18 days. The Sangiovese is then aged for 16 months in new French barriques; the Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 18 months in new French barriques.
