This is definitely their most important wine in terms of tradition and characteristics of the wine. It represents the Sangiovese soul of this Chianti side. As tradition wants, there is a small part of Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo (5%) with the Sangiovese.

After the first winter, they pass the wine into old oak botti for 18 to 24 months and then, at least two years in bottle before the release of the wine.
