Winemaking

Traditional fermentation is carried out over 10 to 12 days at a controlled temperature of below 28 °C in large stainless steel tanks. The wine then matures for a number of months in 25- and 75-hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels, followed by 4 months of maturing in bottles.

Our tasting note

The Chianti Gineprone is an intensive and delicate Chianti containing a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet delights with an intensive note of ripe plums, which is accompanied by a tangy note of some juniper berry and Mediterranean herbs. The wine is full-bodied and treats the drinker to a charming fruitiness on the pallet. Fine notes of violet and herbal echoes from the maturing in barrels.

Col d'Orcia

The Tenuta Col d'Orcia is one of the most historic and well-cultivated vineyards in Montalcino. The estate has over 142 hectares of wine-growing land, whereby the majority is planted with Sangiovese, the unique wine variety for Brunello di Montalcino. Since 1973 the vineyard has beenunder the ownership of the aristocratic family of Marone Cinzano, and in 2010 switched over fully to biodynamic winemaking. Today Col d'Orcia is one of the largest organic vineyards in Tuscany.
