Chianti Classico Riserva D.O.C.G. Drugo
Coming from a selection of Sangiovese grapes from a small vineyard located on a hilltop called Querceto. The south-west facing and fertile soil allow a perfect ripening of the Sangiovese grapes. In October, the best grapes are selected, picked by hand and put in baskets; later, the wine must is put in traditional cement or steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Then, the Drugo is moved into bigger barrels made of medium toast French oak, of 2500 litres and 1000 litres where it is refined for 24 months until bottling. The name Drugo, still used in this area of the countryside today, refers to a strong, very brave and talented man (a knight errant); hence the character and unforgettable personality of this wine.
