Located in Panzano, just 20 km from Florence in the Conca d’Oro in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone, Candialle has only 9ha under vine with the ultimate goal of 12ha. All vineyard work is 100% organic.
Founded as an estate-bottled winery in 2002, Candialle is a husband and wife (German/Finnish) team of Josephin Cramer and Jarkko Peränen. Candialle was, long before their arrival, a wine-producing farm. Originally, (from Roman times onwards), it produced many agricultural goods and was, like most Tuscan farms or “podere”, supplying bigger estates with various agricultural products.
The wines are elegant and pretty with a sweet cherry note from Sangiovese. Stylistically modern but true to their location. Panzano and the surrounding Conca d’Oro are well-known for the high percentage of galestro, a marl-like soil high in limestone. The zone is also 300+ meters above sea level and sees large diurnal shifts. Both the high limestone content and temperature shifts lead to high toned wines with beautiful fruit and elegance.
