Chianti Classico “Berardenga” DOCG
100% Sangiovese grapes are fermented in stainless steel and aged in second- and third-use Slavonian oak casks, with a small percentage in smaller barrels. The wines are then blended and aged in bottle for a few more months.
The hillside vineyards for this wine enjoy southwestern exposure and good altitudes, with varied but typical soil compositions – predominantly rock quartz, limestone, sandstone, and alberese – in the area that contribute to the unique terroir.
