The fruit for Caposaldo Chianti comes from the hilly provinces of Arezzo and Siena in the Chianti region of Tuscany, grown in layers of clay, lime and schist. After handpicking, grapes are brought to the winery for a traditional vinification that includes pumping over for greater extraction of flavor, color and tannins. Thirty percent is aged in oak vats prior to bottling.
