Chianti DOCG (La Cignozza)
The grapes used for this wine are 85% of Sangiovese grape variety, 10% Canaiolo and 5% Mammolo. After the destemming and soft pressing, the grapes are left to ferment for approximately 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks. During the fermentation, 3 pump-overs a day are carried out. As soon as the fermentation is over, the juice from the grapes is immediately separated from the pomace (racking) and transferred to another tank for the malolactic fermentation. In January the wine is put into French oak barrels, where it is left for 12 months. After a light filtration, it is bottled and left to mature for approximately 3 months
