After the harvest

Presently there are three operational areas which guarantee all the procedures for the transformation of the grapes into wine and its consequent aging. The first space is dedicated to the vats with controlled temperature used for the fermentation and maceration right after the harvest.

La bottaia Barrel Cellar

Located at an underground level, it is an antique and amazing place where there are humidity and ideal temperatures all year round allowing the big oak barrels to contain wines which can age in perfect environmental conditions.


In an ancient building adjacent to the barrel cellar, is where the fermentation and aging of our Vin Santo take place. It is here that for about five years we age our Vin Santo del Chianti Merlaia and Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice Fonti e Lecceta in small oak barrels according to tradition.
