About Le Chiantigiane
Le Chiantigiane is based in the heart of the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. The area has been growing grapes and making wines for centuries. The area is known for high quality wines and has over 30 DOC recognised areas and 6 DOCG wines regions.
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.
