SANFIRENZE CHIANTI SUPERIORE DOCG

 
 

€ 13.00

Born from an old vineyard called “Vigna del Maestro” in reference to the careful skill of the old winemaker that looked after it for many years (“The Master”). Sanfirenze is a Chianti Superiore made from grapes of a vineyard of about two hectares lining the south side of the estate, with intentionally limited yields in order to achieve higher quality.

The Fattoria di Sammontana with the adjacent Romanesque church of the 12th century , originally a property of the Medici family, Grand Dukes of Tuscany , was donated by them to the religious canons of the church of San Lorenzo in Florence. The monks used this property as a place of rest and retirement, but they also built a large underground cellar and nearby constructed a grand furnace with overlapping arches for the production of pottery and terracotta.
