Territory and location: Radda in Chianti (Siena)

Type of soil: clayey – sandy with a good occurrence of galestro and alberese
Harvest: the vintage is done completely manually, in the first half of October for sangiovese wine
Fermentation: Both the Sangiovese as well as the Canaiolo used for the production of the Erta di Radda are selected already at the moment of the vintage and afterwards pressed in the traditional way: during this process, which to average lasts between 10 and 15 days, several steps are performed such as fermentation, remontage and refining.
The alcoholic fermentation is carried out without addition of yeasts.
The right time for the separation of the marc is determined by tasting. To average, the process of maceration takes between 25 and 30 days.
The malolactic fermentation takes place partly in wood barrels and partly in steel barrels.
Ageing: 10 months in French wooden barrels which have already been used in the winemaking process.
L’Erta di Radda comes from the passion of a young winemaker who, starting from the strong link to his homeland, has given life to a project that embraces the philosophy of organic farming.
The name comes from the steep slopes of the vineyards situated at short distance from the centre of Radda in Chianti.
The vineyard has ancient roots but over time it has been partly renovated.
Since 2009 wine production is organic, more and more respecting territory and biodiversity.
