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.

DEDICATION
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.

    During a recent trip to Italy, we had a wonderful evening of wine tasting and a cooking class at Podere La Marronaia. One of of favorite wines of the evening was Millennium Dino-Chianti Classico! We shipped numerous bottles home and have enjoyed them very much!

    We loved our private lunch and tour of the winery. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We learned a lot and loved tasting all their fabulous wines. The Classico was my favorite! We shipped home several cases and I’m about to re-order!

    My daughter and I visited the winery for lunch and a tour in May of 2018. The food and wine was delicious, and the hospitality of the Giulia and her family was so very nice and sincere.
    Giulia and I talked just yesterday and I will be ordering more wine and olive oil for the holidays.

    Visiting here was THE highlight of our travels through Tuscany! We had a wonderful afternoon under blue skies surrounded by sun-drenched hills as we tasted (and purchased!) several wines to ship back to the U.S. We were delighted to meet the family, including Dino, and will continue to patronize this beautiful, organic winery! Salute!
