The names of our wines are drawn from the dialect of the Val di Chiana to ensure that our products are true to our traditions. The “Arrone” was the stone placed at each end of the grapevine row. Arrone is a vintage wine with a fruity flavor and a fresh, lightly tannic finish, ideal throughout the meal from start to finish. It is made from a blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes. The grapes are selected and picked by hand then placed in crates. After follows the pressing and stripping, the grapes are placed in steel vats for about two days where the undergo crio-maceration at low temperatures. The temperature is then set to 25-26 °C; fermentation ensues with frequent plunging and racking. After about 20 days, the wine is drawn-off and the skins are pressed, accurately separated and processed. The wine is then aged in steel for six months followed by further two months in the bottle.
