Chianti Classico

Chianti Classico Squarcialupi

Squarcialupi is the traditional Chianti Classico line of the Farm, aimed at producing wines that express the typicality of the Sangiovese grape and the territory, limiting the use of complementary varieties. The Vintage and the Reserve are produced since the first harvest of the 90s; over time, they are defined in blands and sensory characteristics. The line was finally created with the production of the Gran Selezione, starting in 2011. The line takes its name from the Squarcialupi (XVsec) palace, in the center of Castellina in Chianti, where there are the ancient aging cellar, the direct sale, the hotel and the restaurant.

Vinification

Vinification

The grapes are harvested by hand, then the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperature to save primary aromas; after 8-10 days all the sugars are converted into alcohol. To extract the color and the aromas, the peels that raise to the surface are moist with the must/wine. The maceration of the peels on the wine continues for 10-15 days, then the free run wine is separed from the marc, which is pressed. Follows the malolactic fermentation on fine lees for 20 days, to make the wine softer on the palate.

Ageing

Ageing

The wine ages in big barrels of Slavonian oak (capacity from 24 to 47 hl) for 12 months, in the ancient cellar of the Squarcialupi palace. During this period the aromatic profile is defined and the wine acquires softness by polymerization of the polyphenols. Follows the refinement in the bottle for at least 3 months, before being released for consumption.

Chianti Classico Tommaso Bojola Riserva

 The Tommaso Bojola line takes its name from the owner of the Farm and is born as an alternative to the other Chianti Classico line, offering wines of personality, with great aromatic and phenolic potential. These are obtained by means of particular techniques, such as the late harvest of the bunches overripened on the plant and the vinification directly in barrique and tonneau. The blend of Sangiovese with international varieties, which represent 20% of the blend, adds further complexity, structure and body.

Vinification

Vinification

In the best years, part of the grapes is left to overripe on the plant. After at least 15 days from the normal harvesting period, the bunches are selected and collected in crates, guaranteeing their integrity. The grapes ferment in special barriques and tonneaux, placed on supports that allow their rotation and consequently the skimming of the skins, which are perennially immersed in the must/wine. This method allows a delicate and very effective extraction of polyphenols and aromas, prolonging maceration over 40 days. After the first 8-10 days all the sugars are converted into alcohol. The free run wine is separed from the marc, which is pressed. Follows the malolactic fermentation on fine lees for 20 days, to make the wine softer on the palate.
