Background

"This is Montesecondo's largest production and always the first release of the vintage. Montesecondo comprises two separate properties: both are biodynamically farmed and both lie in the San Casciano zone of Chianti Classico. The original family vineyard, generally referred to as "Montesecondo", is lower-altitude, warmer, flatter and with heavier clay soils in the town of Cerbaia; the newer one, referred to as Vignano for the name of the tiny village, is up at 500 meters and is cooler, hillier and rich in limestone. The fruit for the IGT comes from both properties, often from the younger vines and always picked earlier than that for Chianti and "Tin" red. The bunches are harvested by hand and mainly destemmed, leaving the whole berries intact, but with up to 30% left in whole clusters. The whole berries and clusters are layered in concrete tanks and fermented spontaneously with natural yeasts and no sulfur. The maceration is a short 3-4 days and there are no extractive techniques like punchdowns. The wine is aged in concrete for a scant year and bottled with a small amount of sulfur and without fining or filtering."
