“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’s a classic wine, an ancient classic like few others. No chemicals, just grapes. A Sangiovese coming from a loamy and clayey soil that gives a lot of elegance.
It’s a satisfaction in the glass. A beautiful structure and that typical balance of wines from Podere della Bruciata.”
