The estate’s core wine is the Chianti Terre di Corzano, which translates as ‘earth of Corzano’. It’s a blend of 90% Sangiovese co-fermented with 10% Canaiolo, all hand-harvested from Corzano's rocky, south-facing slopes. The soils here are what the Italians call alberese—a compact clay and limestone littered with pebbles—which results in particularly aromatic reds. 


Incorporating 15% whole bunches, the wine was naturally fermented and aged in a combination of large 25- and 40-hectolitre botti casks, a brand of élevage still very rare in barrique-obsessed Tuscany. Goldschmidt enjoys the softening impact of large-format wood on Sangiovese tannins, and we can only agree.
