The Chianti Vigna di Pallino takes its name from the grower who, for many years, lovingly looked after this vineyard, already present on cadastral maps dating to the beginning of the 1800’s. From the heart of the estate, produced largely with Sangiovese and without the use of oak, it is a wine that represents the historic continuity of the estate and the traditions of the region.

Orma is the perfect assemblage of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, grape varieties that have found in these surroundings their perfect habitat. These gently-sloping hills boast deep soils composed largerly of pebble and clay; with very little sand, cool soils that resist the heat of recent seasons, while the nearby Mediterranean tempers the heat coming from inland, cooling the summers and softening the winters. The grapes are hand-picked and vinified according to the dictates of tradition: a fermentation of some 15 days, followed by maceration, with frequent punchdowns and pumpovers, followed by a full year spent in French oak barriques.

Passi di Orma is the newest of our wines, a Bolgheri doc whose first vintage is 2015. A mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes gives this wine a distinctly elegant character. The grapes are grown in mineral rich pebbly terrain with a base of clay. They are harvested and selected by hand. After a fermentation of 10 days, there is a further maceration of eight days with the skins. Ageing is in seasoned French oak barriques for at least 6 months, after which the wine is bottled. Passi di Orma is a perfect reflection of the lands where it is produced. Their high mineral content and sheer beauty blend to give a strength and grace to this international wine which has found its perfect expression.
From our Sangiovese vineyards, located in the area called Vigna di Pallino, is produced the Vigna di Pallino Riserva. Unique and elegant, characterized by elegant spicy plot. Very balanced wine, in the mouth is soft with a nice freshness that makes it long and pleasant.
