ORA. VINSANTO DEL CHIANTI D.O.C.
This traditional wine, called holy wine, is grown with the utmost care and its cultivation – according to our methods – occurs without using any chemicals or fungicides, as a mark of respect for nature and its delicate equilibrium. Our grapes are selected starting from their inflorescence and then harvested by hand at the optimum time, i.e. when the thickness of their skin enables grapes to be dried and the phenolic aspect shows promise for great aromas and flavours. After harvesting, the grapes are left to dry naturally for 4 months. Once the dried grapes have been pressed, their must is then kept in Tuscan oak caratelli, i.e. small oak barrels, where it is required to age for at least 5 years in the so-called holy wine cellar, followed by a further long period of ageing in bottle enabling the wine to achieve an optimum balance. Both natural cycle of the plant and vinification of grapes take place in compliance with our methods maintaining high standards of quality.
