Chianti Classico area is located between Florence and Siena. Thanks to the elevation of this hilly area, vineyards enjoy better ventilation, reducing illnesses and the risk of over-ripeness, which would give the grapes a hint of cooked fruit. The continental climate, mitigated by the proximity of the sea, is characterized by mild winters and hot, dry summers with sharp day- to-night temperature excursion. The soil is not very deep, featuring clay, sand and stones. The images of the Products and any packaging (if applicable) on our Website are for illustrative purposes only.
