#Bio Organic Chianti

#Bio is made from organic grapes grown in the hills of Chianti. The vineyards at an average altitude of 200–300 metres above sea level  with mainly tufa and alberese soils.

The grapes, grown on Guyot and spurred cordon trellis, are immediately taken to the winery after harvesting. They are fermented on the skins, with about 10 days of maceration and frequent pump-overs at controlled temperature to safeguard and enhance the primary aromas of grapes and the secondary aromas generated by the fermentation process. Bottling is scheduled after the most suitable period of ageing in stainless steel and concrete tanks
