    Vinification

    Bellezza – A powerful and elegant single vineyard Chianti Classico Reserve. The name, meaning beauty, came from the workers referencing the magnificent wines and views offered by this vineyard.

    Once picked and separated from their stems, the grapes are pressed and fermented for 16 days, on the skins, in stainless steel tanks. During this time the caps are punched down four times per day and déléstages are performed.

    Malolactic Fermentation occurs in French oak barriques (225 l). For 17 months, 80% of the wine ages in new barriques and 20% is aged in second passage barriques. Before being released it undergoes another six months of in-bottle maturation.
