This Winery began in 1970 when 1,000 tons of grapes were transformed into wine. The original structures have been modernized and the number of members and quality of grapes have increased up to more than 10,000,000 litres. The annual average contribution of grapes is about 7,000 tons. The wine-making, refinement and stabilization fixtures guarantee the best quality and hygiene. The bottling plant is entirely automatic and sterile. The grapes are looked after following traditional Tuscan methods, using the Chianti Riserva way of maturing in wood.
