POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • A classic, traditional Chianti from the Folonari family, making wine since the 1700s
  • Matured for 16 months in oak barrels and 3 months in bottle before release
  • Estate bottled, from a highly regarded estate

    Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres at 300 meters in elevation. In order to obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation is initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a maceration period to draw out color and tannins. The wine is racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging in oak vats and in bottle before release. The wine is bottled on the estate
