Winemaking

Montesecondo comprises two separate properties: both are biodynamically farmed and both lie in the San Casciano zone of Chianti Classico but are quite different from each other. The original family vineyard, generally referred to as "Montesecondo", is lower-altitude, warmer, flatter and with heavier clay soils in the town of Cerbaia; the newer one, referred to as Vignano for the name of the tiny village, is up at 500 meters and is cooler, hillier and rich in limestone. The Chianti is a blend of both sites, with proportions varying by vintage. The grapes are hand-harvested and mainly destemmed but with up to 30% whole clusters in the mix. Pressing is gentle and fermentation with indigenous yeasts is spontaneous in concrete tanks without sulfur. The wine is aged mainly in concrete for 1-1.5 years, bottled without fining or filtering and released in the late spring two years after the vintage.
