Decades of excavations and studies, conducted in the Etruscan archaeological site of Cetamura by Professor Nancy de Grummond, together with the students of the University of Florida, have led to the discovery of dozens of finds, which make it possible to highlight the life of that period in these places.
Together with the discovery of quantities of grapeseed, which demonstrate how the vine was cultivated since ancient times, in the physical place where you have an idea of the birth of the name Chianti.
Vine that fits well in these ridges of stones and dry soils, despite having, the municipality of Gaiole, different types of climate, terrain, altitude, which create completely different wines.
Here the physical place in which the studies and vinifications of Bettino Ricasoli, in search of “sublime wine”, allow us to fine-tune the formula of that ruby wine, drinkable and composite of grapes, which has decreed its popularity and fortune .
And to the big names in winemaking that have been added in recent years, and to the big names that have been made over the years of work, filling dream bottles, have added enterprising young people who are not afraid of the season cycle, having for beloved and faithful companion of the day, a very sharp pruning shear.
