Vallenuova Chianti Classico DOCG

Practicing Organic
    • Description :

      Grapes are manually harvested and sorted twice, firstly when they arrive at the winery as bunches and then again after de-stemming, by an optical sorter. The temperature in the tanks is temperature-controlled; the must is kept in contact with the skins for about 20 days. Remontage occurs every 8 hours with one delestage per week. A brief maceration occurs after fermentation.
      The wine rests for 10 months in wood of which 4 are on the fine lees, and 4 months in bottle.

    • Description :

      There is a certain magic about the relationship between sun (southern exposure), soil (galestro / clay), and altitude, which when combined give life to this Sangiovese. The Chianti Classico Vallenuova is made from a strict selection of Sangiovese harvested from the Estate. The wine matures for 10 months in oak casks, followed by 4 months in bottle. The result is a wine that is juicy and elegant. The name Vallenuova is the historic name of the site and is still today the formal address of the winery.
