Chianti Classico is Sangiovese’s viticultural epicentre and Montecalvi’s Chianti Classico is the beating heart of our estate. Sangiovese is one of a handful of varieties able to produce wines that express boundless complexity and abundant elegance in equal measure. This wine is made almost entirely from Sangiovese from our Montecalvi and Vigna Nuova vineyards, complemented by a small percentage of Canaiolo. This wine sees around 30 days in stainless steel tank, 18 months in French oak tonneaux and six months in bottle prior to release.
We are planning to introduce a 100% Sangiovese Chianti Classico Riserva in 2020.
