San Ferdinando Podere Gamba Chianti DOCG, Tuscany, Italy

Natural Chianti is hard to find, but this gorgeous unfiltered red wine and its nose of forest fruit, cherry, liquorice and coffee is truly delicious. It is a silky smooth style of Chianti with soft tannins and good juicy flavour profile.

Food Match: Try with pasta and a Tuscan Salsa Verde, rigatoni with basil and cherry tomatoes or Braciole di Maiale (sautéed pork chops with rosemary). Truly delcious!

Short Story: San Ferdinando’s estate spreads over 60 hectares in the heart of Tuscany in the area of Val di Chiana noted for its tradition of oil and wine production. The Grifoni family, inspired by the passion and by the respect for this land, purchased the farm in 1998.

The Vineyards: at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level, occupy a total area of nine hectares and are planted with local Ciliegiolo, Sangiovese, Pugnitello and Vermentino. Most of the vineyard activities are rigorously done by hand, while tractors are used for topping and treatments that follow the principles of supervised pest control. All opera ons that are part of the productive cycle of the wine always occur under the supervision of the watchful eye of Simone, who takes care that the vineyard is treated like a garden, with great respect for the environment and for nature. Weedkillers and insecticides are completely banned with plants sown in the vineyard rows and, green manures are frequently used.

The grapes harvested in mid-October normally. Harvest is manual and grapes are sorted, before destemming and a light crushing. The two grapes are vinified separately in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature before being transferred into Allier oak barrels for eight months before being bottled.
