Territory

The soil in the Chianti Classico hills is made up of alberese and galestro: sand of marine deposit where biomass and microbial respiration are among the highest, there is good drainage and water. This terroir give the wines pleasant vegetal notes, well which blend the varietal cherry and violet hints of Sangiovese, leading to a less intensely fruity and full-bodied result than other areas with pleasant undergrowth and humus notes.
