DOCG Chianti Classico Millemiun Dino della Marronaia is cultivated with Guyot in our vineyards over the Siena hills. To obtain the highest quality of the wine, all the operations are carried out by hand, and the grapes are divided according to quality during collection. Harvesting of the grapes takes place in two separate periods. First, we harvest the Canaiolo Nero, and second, the Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in cement vats at a temperature ranging from 28°C-30°C/82°F-86°F. The wine is then left to age in oak barrels for at least 12-months.
Our Chianti Classico DOCG is dedicated to our family’s first Pastore Bergamasco Sheepdog, Dino, who arrived as a puppy in 2000 shortly after Podere La Marronaia was purchased. For ten years he was the fun and furry protector of the young Pietro and Corrado.
