The most famous wine production area of Tuscany, Chianti Classico boasts a rich history that few other zones can rival. First outlined by the Grand Dukes of Tuscany in 1716, the zone was expanded in 1932 to encompass nine villages which straddle the provinces of Florence and Siena. Today, the region has become home to some of Italy’s finest Sangiovese and complex wines that can rival the best that Brunello di Montalcino or Vino Nobile di Montepulciano have to offer.
Located in the district’s southernmost part near Castelnuovo Berardenga, Corsignano was founded in 1988 and boasts some 7 hectares of vineyards of clay and rocky soil that are exclusively planted to the region’s historic grapes (Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera, Canaiolo, etc.). Certified organic since 2014, the estate is eco-friendly and carbon free—all vineyard work is done by hand, and the grapes are vinified separately in concrete vats and stainless steel tanks boasting an integrated temperature control system for optimal fermentation. Aging is done in a variety of barrels, with the most important wines using 5 hl French Tonneau.
Expressing sustainability, attention to detail, and respect for the soil, this is an estate that is confident in the superb expression Sangiovese can give. Don’t miss out!
