About the Event
About the Winery:
Chioccioli Altadonna Chianti Classico - Limited production, only in the best vintages
Greve in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Querciagrossa, represent real complex ecosystems.
The soils are unique, with a medium clay texture and rich in marl and limestone. The altitude range is 300-500 m.a.s.l.
Dense woods, whose biodiversity contributes to their productive uniqueness, surround the vineyards. The wood, along with the hosting of numerous different animal and plant species, represents a natural barrier, a water reserve, a temperature mitigating and contributes significantly to the quality of the grapes in harmony with natural processes.
The vineyards farming has always been carried out following the integrated pest management and they are now in the process of certified biological conversion, in order to support their continuous commitment to the environment.
In this ecosystem, Man, who must be able to interpret it and at the same time respect it, also represents an important role. This is why they follow and work personally in all the viticultural operations: pruning, stripping, binding until harvest, with the aim of obtaining healthy, ripe grapes with a strong territorial identity.
