Production

The grapes for the Chianti Classico Petrignano come from the Petrignano vineyard, which lies 335 metres above sea level. The site sits on the Monte Morello, boasting soils that are rich in stones and minerals, with limestone rocks that appear on the surface. Vines are between 5 and 20 years old and trained with the Guyot system.

After picking and pressing, the must was fermented in 75-hectolitre cement vats with natural yeasts at a controlled maximum temperature between 26-28°C. After about two weeks of fermentation, the wine was racked into large, untoasted 41-hectolitre French oak barrels, where it remained for 13 months prior to bottling. A further 3 months of ageing in bottle occurred prior to release.
