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. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a temperature of 32-33°C for a duration of about 25 days for the Merlot and 27 for the Sangiovese, induced by indigenous yeasts. The wine then carries out the malolactic fermentation in barriques, and after this procedure the two varieties are assembled and then aged in fine-grained oak barriques for 40% new for about 14 months.
