A small section of the olive groves, those at Podere Albereto, is dedicated to the production of this very special oil.Only a limited quantity is bottled. It is produced from several varieties of olive, principally Frantoio and Leccino, and smaller quantities of Moraiolo and Maurino. It has a deep emerald green hue.
Grappa di Sangioveto is produced only with the skins of the grapes used for our Sangioveto, the finest. The pomace is shipped fresh, immediately after a soft pressing. The use of a discontinuous process with indirect steam, ensures the expression of the finest aromas.
Spring was fairly rainy and average temperatures were high. A very dry and warm Summer followed. Some wet and rainy days in September have helped a complete and balanced growth of vines . Wines have a great aromatic base and are high in concentration. Harvest period: 6th September - 10th October
‘San Zoveto’ which later became ‘Sangioveto’, was the name commonly used in the past in Chianti for the Sangiovese varietal. The Sangioveto di Coltibuono was created to honour a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. It is only produced on better vintages.
