Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico DOCG

The vineyards of Volpaia, located between 300 and 500 metres of elevation, are the highest in the Chianti region. This is one of the reasons why our Chianti Classico is renown for its elegance and freshness with a rich bouquet of red fruits and spices.

The grapes are harvested by hand and collected in boxes holding less than 20Kgs of fruit. In the winery, they are destemmed and lightly pressed before fermentation commences use their own yeasts for two weeks. After this, the wines macerate for a further ten days on their own skins to give structure, complexity and colour to the wines prior to malolactic fermentation to knock the edges off. Ageing takes place in oak barrels for 14 months.
