Manual harvesting is much more difficult and takes much longer. But the final quality of the product is the best.
With a manual harvest you can choose, based on the experience and skill of the collector, the best bunches where there are no signs of mold, damage caused by insects or bad weather.
Only the best bunches will be selected manually to be used for a slow and long process of fermentation, maceration and aging in wood.
This is the care we have for our grapes that will be used to create our future Chianti Classico Riserva and Gran Selezione.
During the next days we will start a new harvest. We will have a manual harvest to select the best grapes that we have in our fields.
A manual selection of our grapes will give us a great final quality. We will inform you soon to let you know some news!

Found the perfect bottle of wine that you can age on you cellar.
Here you can found some tips to have a perfect cellar in perfect conditions.
- Leave the bottle in a dark room.
- The temperature need to be medium-cold (14°-18°) with an humidity between 60% and 80%.
- Position of the bottle: ORIZONTAL. The bottle will be with a natural cork when it will be possible to age it for years. It’s really important to know that the cork will be in contact with the wine to be wet every time. With this method the wine will be protected by the oxidation process.
