An interesting novelty from the Chianti Classico area, which will increasingly identify the productions, the brand and the territories of the Black Rooster.
A subdivision of the Chianti Classico production area into smaller areas with greater homogeneity, to get to indicate on the label the name of the village or fraction where the wine originates. This is the novelty introduced by the Chianti Classico consortium with an amendment to the specification approved today by a large majority by the shareholders' meeting with the aim of further enhancing the distinctive characteristics of the Gallo Nero wines and their territoriality.
Therefore, some areas within the Chianti Classico production area have been identified and delimited, explains a note, distinguishable on the basis of specific criteria such as oenological recognition, historicity, notoriety and significance in terms of volumes produced:
San Donato in Poggio (including the territories of Barberino Tavarnelle and Poggibonsi)
In this first phase, the Uga will be applied only to the GRAN SELEZIONE, with the availability and opening of use in the future also for the other two types, Chianti classico and Riserva.
A second amendment to the specification has also been approved regarding the blend of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, increasing the minimum percentage of Sangiovese from 80 to 90%, and eliminating the use of international red grape varieties in the case of blends. However, it is still possible to use native vines, up to 10%.
Now, you just have to taste and enjoy the magnificent productions of our beautiful area!
We are waiting for you!
