  • DESCRIPTION The choice of a healthier and more sustainable agriculture was born in 1985 with the decision at that time in total contrast not to use herbicides and insecticides. In the following years, the 600 mother vines are selected that will be used for the replanting of the vineyards, which begin in 1988. Over the years the Organic approach is increasingly realized, leading to the certification of the olive groves in 1994 and in 2000 to the certification of the entire 'agency. Grassing, composting, organic fertilization and increasing biodiversity are the cornerstones of an approach that safeguards the health of workers and the environment. A livelier and healthier soil also becomes an added value for the quality and territoriality of the wines. Today, with the guidance of the Delinat directives, the approach to Bio becomes increasingly articulated and includes all company practices. With the creation of the Biodistretto del Chianti, a collective challenge is launched so that the whole territory is managed in a sustainable way following the principles of organic agriculture.
  • AGING 12-14 months in used barriques; after blending at least 6 months of maturation in oak barrels and a minimum of 6 months of aging in the bottle.
