Intense ruby red with a strongly scented bouquet of red fruits, sour black cherry and plum. On the palate, it is harmonic with a velvety texture.
Certosa di Belriguardo is located in an amazing 14th-century charterhouse, just 4 miles from the city of Siena in the heart of the Chianti dei Colli Senesi area of Tuscany. The winery has always been owned by the family of Gianna Nannini, a world-famous rock singer who recently rediscovered her passion for wine. In 2006 she took over the family estate, engaging the talent of Manuel Pieri, expert winemaker and one of the pupils of Renzo Cotarella.
Today, Certosa di Belriguardo, with its 8 hectares of vineyards, produces the most iconic wines of the area, such as Chianti and a few other IGTs that truly mirror Gianna Nannini’s love for her homeland and roots. The estate cultivates mainly Sangiovese, the area’s most representative grape variety, which has always been part of the DNA of these soils. The meticulous attention and care devoted to the vines is possible thanks to the limited extension of the vineyards, which are pruned and harvested entirely by hand. The estate has abandoned the use of synthetic fertilizers and herbicides and is currently undergoing conversion to organic farming
