About the Producer
In the mid-nineties The producer worked, together with their father Loris, in the forestry sector, and then alongside the local wine growers for the creation of vineyards and olive groves and for the agricultural tillage of the land.
In 1998, however, they decided to make their own products. To create the wines they utilise all the experience gained over many years in which they shared sunrises with the iconic black roosters and sunsets with a bunches of grapes ready for the Chianti Classico harvest.
The official name of the company is L’ Antica Fornace di Ridolfo, and it was chosen because it tells about the history that has passed around the house and the estate.
Vineyard and Winery
During the harvest a strict selection of the best grapes with the best maturation is performed. Grapes are hung on racks or laid on plateau in airy rooms, usually untill midway through January. Grapes are then selected again, and after they are pressed and left to ferment in small sealed oak barrels called “caratelli”. These barrels are not completely filled and are stored under the roof in loft areas. In the “Caratelli” the Vinsanto starts its very long fermentation, which goes on for all period of aging for many years. Fermentation will be conditioned by seasonal and daily temperature changes, with activation and slowdown steps. This very long process, led by autochthonous yeasts, gives the wine its peculiar and unique characteristics of colour and aroma.
