Winemaker Mery Ferrara produces wine in a graceful, elegant style that respects the fresh, mineral edge often found in the world’s best Chianti Classico.

Caramelized peaches, grassy and a little sassy, honeydew rind.

Hand harvested. De-stemmed and whole bunches undergo a natural fermentation in vat. Whole bunch portion left in contact with skin for 5 days, creating a sort of ‘infusion’ to extract flavor and aroma yet minimize tannin. MLF is blocked to retain a high level of freshness and bright acidity. No additions other than minimal SO2 at bottling. Unfiltered.
