Montesecondo

100% Sangiovese. The fruit comes generally from the younger vines and from both Montesecondo properties: the lower-altitude, more-clay-driven San Casciano and the higher-altitude, limestone-rich Vignano. It is picked earlier than the grapes that go into the Chianti Classico and Tin bottlings. Fermentation is with natural yeasts with no addition of sulfur; maceration is short: and aging is in concrete tank. The two parcels are vinified and aged separately and blended before bottling.This is Silvio's largest production and is always the first release of the vintage.
