BARCAIOLO

Chianti Colli Senesi
D.O.C.G.

“Barcaiolo (Boatman) this is how the pile of hand-harvested wheat leaps was called at Lake Chiusi, the place where the vineyards of our Chianti grows.

It is a classic wine, an ancient classic as few are. No chemistry, just grapes. A small Sangiovese berry from a silty soil that gives a lot of satisfaction. A beautiful structure and the typical balance of Podere della Bruciata wines.
