ABOUT THIS WINE
This wine is produced only in top great vintages, using the finest grapes selected from the San Marcellino vineyard that surrounds the Church of San Marcellino in Monti in Chianti: An area of about 7 hectares where Sangiovese (1.5 hectares of which are 50 years old) are joined by 0.9 hectares of Pugnitello, an old indigenous Tuscan grape that perfectly complements Sangiovese, bringing out its color, structure and aromas. Since 2006 the San Marcellino cuvee has included about 5% Pugnitello.
The wine ages for about 24 months in medium toast barriques from Allier. It is bottled unfiltered to preserve its elegance and freshness, and aged in bottle for at least 24 months prior to release.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
