To produce the Chianti Classico DOCG Villa Trasqua the vinification takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature (26/28 °C), with maceration (skin contact) for at least 20/22 days. Aged for a minimum of 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels of 5000 litres.
Strengthened by the tradition of an ancient land, lulled by the placid Tuscan wind, this Chianti Classico finds its wise expression in a wine with an intense aroma, slightly spicy and pleasant on the palate. A sustainable wine, born from the respect for the exceptional biodiversity of Villa Trasqua through the principles of organic cultivation.
