BACK TO ROOTS. THE ESSENCE OF DIEVOLE
THE SINGLE VINEYARD CHIANTI CLASSICO PROJECT
CHIANTI CLASSICO CASANOVA
A Chianti Classico “as it used to be”, immediate, with a nice acidity, pleasant to drink The Casanova terroir gives us a very modern Sangiovese with extremely traditional roots, which with its elegance and freshness reminds us of the Chianti Classico wines of years gone by.
Soil: Macigno del Chianti
Extent: 2.5 ha
Altitude: 400 m a.s.l.
Exposure: South West, South East.
The vineyard is located near the winery, north of Dievole.
Tasting notes: very bright ruby red. Classic aromas of the variety emerge on the nose, with notes of small red fruits such as cherries and morello cherries, alternating with spicy hints. The palate is smooth, supported by a dense tannic texture and a savoury, velvety finish.
CHIANTI CLASSICO CATIGNANO
Catignano is a plateau at 370 m above sea level with vineyards of different ages and a large presence of Alberese. The exposure is west, south-east, with a lot of sun during the day but also rather cold temperatures at night, with a temperature range that favors the aromatic development of the grapes.
Soil: Formazione Monte Morello
Extension: 11 ha
Altitude: 370 m a.s.l.
Exposure: West, South East
Tasting notes: the nose opens on hints of red fruits, then goes on to perceive a tertiary complexity of tobacco leather, graphite and liquorice.
Warm and juicy on the palate, where ripe red fruit notes are rediscovered.
CHIANTI CLASSICO PETRIGNANO
Concentrated wine with a very rich sip. The abundant presence of fossil remains, the depth of the roots and the low vigor that the plants find in this area give us a particularly expressive wine, a Cru with a great personality.
Soil: Monte Morello formation. Great stoniness.
Extension: 7 ha
Altitude: 350 m a.s.l.
Exposure: North east
Tasting notes: ruby red colour to the glass, deep and intense. The nose opens on intense and ripe fruit tones, of plum and wild berries in particular, followed by hints of tobacco, wet earth and chalk. The taste is full and lively, imposing but well worked in the tannic texture, persistent and savoury on the finish
