The hilly soil and the weather conditions of Tuscany are ideal for grape growing and, with the passing centuries, the numerous types of grapes grown gave rise to some rare and much loved varieties.
Nowadays, the most grown variety is the noble Sangiovese.
Le Chiantigiane is 100% Sangeovese, picked from some of the best local vineyards. It is a cooperative wine, with long standing relationships amongst all of the grape growers.
The winery is a modern efficient outfit, the sangiovese grapes are gently crushed and fermented at a natural temperature. Then the wine rests in very old large oak vats before bottling allowing the wine to come together well.
