Vineyard: The Pagliarese vineyards cover two different slopes of the Colle di Montecucco, rather different in geology and surface topography, so much so that they are classified as two distinct macro-areas. The slope facing Castelnuovo Berardenga comprises sandy-loam soils derived from Mid-Upper Pleistocene era (500,000-125,000 ya) alluvial terraces, chalky macigno quartzite sandstone, stratified sands, mixed alberese, and alluvial pebble. This soil composition tends to produce fruitier wines, with finely-balanced palates and a vibrant acidity that is readily perceptible in the mouth. The vineyard here is dedicated to Chianti Classico production.
