Our vineyards are located in the territory of the famous and prestigious Chianti Classico and cover a total surface of almost 7 hectares (about 7 acres). Vineyards are cultivated both with red berried grapes (Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Canaiolo and Colorino) and with white berried grapes (Trebbiano Toscana and Malvasia Lunga del Chianti).
The wine production is carried out in a way to respect traditions and environment: the careful care of vines, the manual harvesting of grapes, the meticulous selection of grapes and the constant control of the production process by qualified enologists, ensure a high quality wine.
Pensieri’s area has a mild and warm climate and rainfall is about 700 mm per year, mainly in autumn and in springtime. The alluvial soils, due to the proximity of the Arbia river, have a high percentage of sodium and a fairly high pH which favor the creation of a more delicate wine with fruity notes than in other areas of Chianti.
Depending on the type, our wine is aged in high quality French oak barrels or in stainless steel tanks.
