Description

History

The San Giusto a Rentennano facility is located on the upper course of the Arbia river in one of the southernmost areas of the Chianti Classico denomination. The company is located on an ancient monastery at the time called San Giusto alle Monache which over the centuries was transformed into a fortress. According to some documents, already in 1204 the castle was marked as the border between the counties of Siena and Florence. Today the structure and the company have belonged to the Martini di Cigala family since 1914 and the battlements of the fortress, the castle walls and the underground cellars which serve as an aging place for the wines produced are still intact.

Grapes used

Sangiovese 95%

Canaiolo 5%

Production method

The harvest takes place manually usually in September when the grapes reach perfect ripeness. The grapes are fermented in enamelled concrete and/or stainless steel tanks for approximately 14 days, during which frequent punching down and pumping over are carried out. During racking, the juicy pomace is pressed and the pressed grapes are added to the wine. After the malolactic fermentation has taken place, the wine ages in 500 l oak tonneaux for approximately 10-12 months with a further 6 months before being released on the market.

Alcohol content

14.5%
