Manual or Mechanical Harvest?

Why do we prefer a manual harvest compared to a mechanical harvest?
The mechanical harvest is faster and easier, a machine that collects every bunch of grapes present in the row without looking at the quality of the grapes

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.
