The big news of 2022 for the production of wine in Chianti Classico are the UGA, Additional Geographical Units.
What does it mean? The Chianti Classico production area, already well defined, has been further subdivided into smaller areas that have a homogeneous territorial character, indicating the name of the specific area on the label.
The UGA will be 11 and precisely
SAN DONATO IN POGGIO
The UGA allow the consumer to identify the origin of the grapes and have the maximum differentiation of the offer on national and international markets.
The differentiation criteria are based on oenological recognition, historicity and significance based on production volumes. The bureaucratic process for the application is in progress and at first the UGA will be applied only to the production of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.
Definitely a great big step taken for the purposes of wine-territory communication that will allow us to understand and appreciate more and more accurately the deep bond of Chianti Classico wine to its land, something that we have always emphasized in our tastings here at Vinaino di Greve
Salute ! 🍷
