Our first label, which our story as vinegrowers has started from. Based on the classic formula of Chianti wine, is made from Sangiovese, Canaiolo e Malvasia Nera grapes, and it is vinified and aged in the concrete vats in the historical Pieve de’ Pitti’s cellar. Although it was originally made from our oldest vineyards only, today, it has personality and a characteristic expression thanks to the Sangiovese grapes produced by the new vineyards planted by the family in 2001.
We thought about the Chianti taste that we treasure in our childhood memory. That’s Cerretello for us.
