They are subsequently left to ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeasts with the aim of maximizing the expression of the territory. Maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for at least 2 weeks. Finally, the aging takes place in Troncais and Allier barriques for a period of 18 months.
The result is a Chianti Classico which in the glass appears of a beautiful intense ruby and the typical hints of Sangiovese arrive to the nose, floral notes of violet mixed with leather and tobacco. In the mouth it is full and decisive, with spicy hints and a persistent finish.
