Due to careful vinification processes, Chianti Chigi Saracini is known for its ruby-red colour with unmistakable purple hues. The aroma is clean and captivating to the nose, reminiscent of blossoms and small, red fruits. With ageing, the Chianti DOCG naturally evolves into more complex and mature sensations.

After approximately 12 days of fermentation, the grape skins are left to macerate in wine for an additional 3 to 4 days, and only subsequently is the new wine finally removed from the skins. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is cold-stabilized and thus prepared for market distribution by the spring after harvesting.

 

 

The Chigi Saracini wineries are the result of a successful match between the beautiful observances of the Chianti’s tradition and heritage and also the progress of modern technologies today.

Every bottle of wine produced on the Chigi Saracini Estate at Castelnuovo Berardenga tells the historic story of the esteemed noble families who established and developed a property whose origins date back to very ancient times.
The coat of arms, which coincides with today’s brand image, combines the emblems of the four families who alternated or joined at the helm of the property through family relationships or as a result of various historical events. It was in the 12th century that these nobles of German origin, who already possessed large domains in the Maremma region, settled in Siena.

Today the property is part of the large MPS Tenimenti group.
