Il Prato

This vineyard rests at the crest of the Capaccia property. The vines bask in the sun all day as the gentle breezes constantly circulate the air. Galestro soil allows for perfect drainage and the deep clay below the surface holds water for the roots. Sangiovese from this vineyard is an expression of the region and the true Chianti Classico.

Lo Scopiccio

On the southeast facing side of the hill are the Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Sangiovese vines. The soil is similar to the Cortaccio vineyard but has less silt and more drainage. The vines take longer to find their footing and will need an additional year before reaching full production.

Le Capanelle

On a steep southern slope, the vineyard management is a delicate balance of controlling erosion and soil structure with the use of cover crops. The organic material is reinforced at the top of the slope in order to balance the vineyard. The vines at the base of the slope are more vigorous and the clusters are thinned in the summer to ensure a complete maturation.
