Castello della Paneretta



The very old vineyards…

By particular company choice the only grape varieties planted and used are Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero. They are the results of internal selections started many generations ago. The real strength of this company is the very old vineyards with medium to high density which survived the terrible years of restructuring of vineyards in Tuscany in the sixties and seventies. Therefore all the genetic material in the winery is strictly from autochthon clones which completely reflect the characters of the soils.

At the moment half of the 22 hectares planted has a density of 5,000 plants/ hectare and in the future we anticipate a density of 6,000 to 8,000 plants/ hectare. We strongly believe that using exclusively Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero is not only our tradition but also the only answer to the increasing popularity of the New World wines. We think in fact that making good Merlot or Cabernet wines is possible wherever you are in the world, however, only the Chianti Classico region has the potentiality to produce outstanding Sangiovese and Canaiolo.
