The little old wine cellar
The family has recourse to three wine cellars. The oldest, located in the Podere Fontino, handles the malolactic fermentation and the aging of the Chianti Classico Riserva and the Gran Selezione. The cellar, which in ancient times has already been a landmark in the 11 th century, which formerly was the building of the commune subdivision, and later belonged to the Carthusian monks of Pontignano, it is nowadays characterized by a small space, where the wine can only communicate with a few people: it talks through its typical aromas, colors and flavors about its transformation, made up of complex biochemical games.
The cellar for wine aging
This cellar was built after the company was founded in 1954 and is currently involved for the wine aging. Inside are located barriques which respect and ensure the well aging over time, for the production of our Super Tuscans IGT and the big French oak barrels for the aging of the Chianti Classico and the Riserva.
The fermentation wine cellar
The new wine cellar, built in 1995, contains high-tech wine vats made of stainless steel with a capacity of more than 2400 liters. In this cellar there are several sections: one devoted to the various stages of the controlled must fermentation, another one for the new bottling line and, finally, one for storage.
Here are also the tasting room and the office.
