The blend consists of over 90% Sangiovese and about  10% Canaiolo. Vinification kicks off with a slow spontaneous fermentation on its own yeasts in cement tanks. 

Merlot `Primo Fuoco`

In the language of potters “Primo Fuoco” is clay's first firing that leads to terracotta (with a second and a third firing you get different types of ceramic). The merlot is sourced from a single vineyard that is highest in elevation of the estate's and one of the oldest with the average vine age being 40 years. As with the Chianti, fermentation kicks off naturally and indigenously. The wine is matured in a large terracotta amphora, hand-made from local red clay. Average annual production is around 600 bottles.
