Chianti Gourmet Experience

On September 28th and 29th don’t miss the fantastic Chianti Gourmet Experience’s event. The previous edition took place at Vertine involving thousands of wine and food enthusiasts.

This year the event will take place at Castello di Meleto, where the wineries of the area, the breweries, the restaurants will be present with the participation of some of the greatest Italian star chefs.

Impara la pronuncia On 29 September we will also be present with our wines, we are waiting for you !!

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.

June in Tuscany!

Tuscany finally have the perfect summer days. Finally the sun follow us every day.

It is the best moment to enjoy a beautiful glass of Rosato Petali or a glass of our White wine Cantavento

Our Rosè Petali is perfect to pair with Salads, Fish, Vegetables, Cold rice… Summer dishes that are light! But you can enjoy it as like an aperitive too to share with friends or family!  

The White Wine Cantavento could be paired with Truffles, Cheeses but also Fish! And if you love Pasta with Basil Pesto… it is perfect!

The benefits of Extra Virgin Olive-Oil

It’s incredible how much olive oil we can use during the day.

ExtraVergine Olive Oil (EVOO) means an oil that come from the first pressing of olives.

The best process of extraction of Olives is a Cold Press to not affect its innate quality.

Olio ExtraVergine

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is used a lot in the Italian Cuisine

It is a good rule to accompany all dishes of meat, fish, soups and bruschetta.

Why we should use the Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

  • Lowers cholesterol
  • It prevents cardiovascular diseases
  • Protects the liver
  • Help the digestion
  • Regulate the intestine
  • Help the Skin

Do you have Extra Virgin Olive Oil at Home? Taste our Olive Oil!

With the cold pressing of our olives, Leccino Moraiolo and Frantoio is an olive oil that conquers the palate thanks to its natural bitterness and light spiciness!
