Chianti Classico

Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin

Sangiovese 95% and Canaiolo 5%


San Giusto a Rentennano Chianti Classico is a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo grapes, hand-picked when perfectly mature. It is fermented in glazed concrete and stainless steel vats for about 14 days. During fermentation the skins and must are pumped-over and punched-down a number of times to extract the maximum qualities from the grapes. After the wine has been racked , the skins are soft-pressed in an horizontal press and the juice thus obtained is added to the wine. Malolactic fermentation is stimulated by heating the building where the vats are stored. The wine is racked several time during maturation in cask and 500 liters oak tonneaux for 10-12 months.
