Founded around the 70s thanks to the vision of four families of Roman origin, with the aim of revitalizing the area and the vineyards and giving the Chianti Classico the fame it once had. The vineyards extend over an area of about 75 hectares at an altitude ranging from 475-520 m which are the cradle for wines of character. Today the leadership of the company is entrusted to Lorenza Sebasti, daughter of one of the owner family who has taken over the management of the company since 1993. Today it is affirmed among the most dynamic realities of the Chianti Classico, capable of blending together local grapes with international vines, for results of elegance and finesse both in the mouth and on the nose.
The harvest takes place strictly by hand in boxes from the end of August to mid-October depending on the state of ripeness of the individual parcels. For the production of this wine, the grapes of the youngest vines aged between 10 and 12 years are used. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a temperature of 32-33°C for a duration of about 25 days, induced by indigenous yeasts. The wine then carries out the malolactic fermentation in steel tanks. The wine undergoes a period of aging in second or third passage casks; it was then bottled and, after a further period of rest in the bottle, it was placed on the market.
Intense ruby red color with violet hues. Aromas of red fruit on the nose: ripe cherry, raspberry, pomegranate are the masters, to then fade into more herbaceous sensations due to the small presence of merlot and sensations of black pepper and vanilla due to the passage in wood. In the mouth full body, robust, but also a discreet softness and elegance complete the sip.
Icon of the Chianti Classico, very elegant and versatile: I would combine it with a traditional steak even where a robust but also elegant and enveloping Chianti Classico is preferred, or with a first course of meat or tomato sauce.
