It represented, stylistically, both a well structured and complex offering and a wine with much fragrance and fruit, a character was made possible by a unique micro-climate. The vineyards are planted in a particularly favorable valley on soils rich in mineral elements, ideal for the cultivation of a Sangiovese full of vitality and fruit. The Pèppoli estate, located in the heart of Chianti Classico, consists of 100 total hectares (250 acres), fifty of which (125 acres) are planted to vines.
