Chiesamonti is from single 1.3-hectare parcel called Chiesa Monti. The parcel is adjacent to the town of San Felice in Castelnuovo Berardenga. It has a stonier soil profile (lower clay content) than Le Trame. The 10-year-old vines consist of almost all Sangiovese with a touch of Canaiolo. Elevage is 2 years in 5hl Stockinger oak barrels, very similar to the Le Trame regimen.
Tasting Notes: A sultry red Sangiovese fruit over grainy tannin is in contrast to the Le Trame which has a tighter structure and will need more time to relax.
Lees: Wine remains on its fine lees until assemblage prior to bottling
Sulfites: Applied at bottling with ~40 or less mg/l total sulfites
