Vineyards

Our vineyards are composed of the various species of vines typical of Chianti: the species most widely represented is Sangiovese, the main protagonist of Chianti and of Tuscan wines in general, followed by other minor varieties such as Canaiolo, Colorino, and lastly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and to a lesser extent Cabernet Franc.

We also produce varieties of white grapes, such as Trebbiano del Chianti, aromatic Malvasia, Moscato and San Colombano. The forms of production that we employ are spurred cordons, French guyot and the Tuscan archlet.

Of the 5 hectares of vineyards that we tend, approximately 3 produce Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG grapes, whereas the other 2 produce IGT grapes . The quantities produced per hectare correspond to those indicated by the Chianti Colli Fiorentini production regulations,  i.e. 70-80 ql/ha.
