Brilliant ruby red in the glass; In the nose a wide bouquet of black berries, leather, pepper and vanilla; On the palate a complex and compact body with elegant but present tannins. The finish is long and complex.
Stefano Chioccioli, one of the most respected and excellent winemakers in the region, runs the family winery. Under his care a real jewel was created in a very short time.
Together with his two sons Niccolò and Enrico, they take care of the vineyard in Gaiole Chianti as well as the vines in the two classico zones Quercegrossa and Gaiole Chianti.
The soils are medium clayey, rich in limestone and marl. With 5000 vines per hectare and an average yield of 30 hectolitres per hectare, the yield is rather small and far below the legal requirements.
