Purple colour, light and strong at the same time, It’s perfectly matured, a result of modernity and tradition.
Paolo Cianferoni took over winemaking at his family's 12 hectare property in 1982. Shortly thereafter he began the conversion to organic, quality-driven viticulture. Extremely low yield farming on the unusually exposed west by northwest sloping vineyards at a 500m + elevation, results in an atypical style for Chianti Classico. The wines are dark, dense and brooding, yet fine, revealing their high altitude site, with aging potential well beyond what is commonly expected. These are wines that really shine in warm vinatges and are frequently excessively acidic in cool ones, luckily for us we are "allowed" to only buy the ones we like, or in the case of these 2007's, love. The traditional version, "Caparsino" includes all the historical red grapes of Chianti, while the single vineyard, old vine, "Doccio a Matteo" is pure Sangiovese aged in nuetral small barrels. These wines are serious and really, really delicious!!! Extremely limited.
