Faunae - 2015

VINTAGE

Denomination

Chianti Classico DOCG

Description

Representative of an uncontaminated land that has remained unchanged through time, Faunae perfectly expresses the essence of Chianti Classico and its terroir.

Vintage Report

The regular rainfall during the winter of 2015 together with the dry and sunny spring that followed contributed to a homogenous development of the leaves. During the first week of August, significant rain brought some much needed respite to the plants, while the months of September and October – drier and with chilly evening temperatures – allowed the grapes to develop and ripen perfectly.
