Vinification and aging: After a careful and precise selection of the grape clusters, the manually harvested grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats and maceration lasted for circa 20 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred into oak barrels of 42hl where malolactic fermentation takes place and where it remains for ageing. Once bottled, the wine remains stored in the estate for refinement prior to its release. This wine expresses the unique character of Mocenni’s and Chianti Classico territory.
