Winemaker Notes: Podere Ciona is located in Chianti Classico, the original and oldest part of Tuscany’s Chianti wine-growing region, symbolized by the Gallo Nero {Black Rooster}, a figure prominently featured on the authentication labels of locally produced wines.

Our estate lies on a south-facing hill between 1,600 and 2,050 feet (490 and 625 meters) above sea level, with an altitude difference of over 400 feet (120 meters) between the highest and lowest vineyards. It comprises 13 acres (5.4 hectares) of vineyards, 2 acres (0.5 hectares) of olive groves – about 120 trees – and 100 acres (40 hectares) of woodland, primarily oak and chestnut. We also have fruit trees, chickens and two vegetable gardens (beehives coming soon), with the intent of diversifying cultivation and self-producing as much as possible.

The plantings extend over an area of about 13 acres (5.4 hectares), oriented to the south-southwest. The soils are a mixture of quartz arenite (sandstone), clay schist and marl and have excellent drainage – ideal for high-quality winemaking. The varietals planted are Sangiovese, Merlot, Alicante Bouschet, and a little Cabernet Franc. The lower vineyards, about 10 acres (4 hectares), were replanted between 1999 and 2003, the rest in the winter of 2011/2012; the lower Cabernet Franc vineyard was re-grafted in 2018.
