Vinification of the Vigna del Capannino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from Tenuta di Bibbiano
The powerful Vigna del Capannino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from Italy is a single-varietal wine made from the Sangiovese grape variety. The Vigna del Capannino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is an Old World wine through and through, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The fact that the Sangiovese grapes thrive under the influence of a warm climate also has an undeniable influence on the ripening of the grapes. Among other things, this results in particularly well-ripened grapes and a rather high alcohol content in the wine. When they are perfectly ripe, the grapes for the Vigna del Capannino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in concrete and small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off. Ageing in wooden barrels is followed by considerable bottle ageing, which makes this red wine even more complex.
