The grapes for Tiamo Chianti come from an organically farmed vineyard in the village of Montespertoli which lies about 20 miles to the west of Florence. The vines are at least 25 years old and located on hillsides with calcareous, clay soils.
Following harvest, the grapes are destemmed and macerated in stainless steel tanks for a few days before fermentation begins which last for a further 10 to 14 days. The two varietals are fermented separately and are carefully blended afterwards. The wine then goes through malolactic fermentation and are aged in stainless steel tanks. No oak is used in order to retain as much of the fruit qualities of the wine as possible. Bottling is usually 12 months later.
