Candialle La Misse di Candialle Chianti Classico DOCG 2020
From high density vineyard trained in the albarello or bush vine training system. It is a field blend of 94% Sangiovese, 3% Malvasia Nera, 3% Canaiolo that was co-harvested and co-fermented using native yeast in unlined concrete for a month. It was then aged in concrete to preserve a purity of fruit and the natural florality of the wine. A brilliant and evocative new release!
Jarkko and Josephin Peranen are a husband and wife team who farm their 42 hectares (only 11.5 planted to grapes) organically in the Conca d'Oro (golden bowl) in the heart of Chianti Classico in Tuscany. The Peranen's dedication to slow and natural viticulture and vineyard management is evident in every aspect of their winery starting with their association with a group of likeminded winemakers who are working to have their village of Panzano become the first viticultural region of Italy to be completely organic. From grape to glass there is minimal intervention and ecological stewardship.
