Al Limite

Chianti Classico
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita

AL LIMITE of a TERROIR

San Leonino is effectively a border area between Florence and Siena, of contrast between clay and alberese, between a continental climate and the more temperate one to the south of Siena.

AN AL LIMITE GRAPE VARIETY

The purity of Sangiovese 100%
It is only by limiting ourselves to this that we succeed in bringing out the unique features of the area.

AL LIMITE of TECHNIQUES

At a time like the present one, which has seen standardization of the area’s wines, we wanted to bring out the grape variety and the land in a traditional style.

After fermentation in steel and 18 days on the skins at controlled temperatures, the wine ages for 18 months in 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels and concrete tanks.

AN AL LIMITE STYLE

A dazzling ruby red colour, an explosively aromatic nose: ripe cherries, violets, menthol tobacco, rhubarb.
Warm, silky palate, packed with tasting tension and tangy mineral notes with stylish, all encompassing tannins.

For us, making an AL LIMITE wine means a Chianti Classico which embodies its denomination and is an authentic expression of its land.
