Descrizione vino

The Melini winery produces this sensational red wine “La Selvanella” with Sangiovese grosso grapes. The vineyard is extended for 50 hectares all owned and cultivated with the Guyot method and the cordon spur pruning and they are located at 400 meters in the “La Selvanella” farm in the Radda hamlet. It is one of the best Cru of the Chianti territory and the soil is rich of alberese. It is exposed at south-west. The grape harvest takes place in October and there are 20 days of maceration with several pumping over. After the alcoholic fermentation at 27°C it follows the malolactic one. The refinement takes place in French oak barrels for 30 months and it follows the bottle refinement for one year.
