Last born in the Casaloste family, it expresses all the refinement and power of the Sangiovese grape produced in the Chianti area. It is obtained by combining the balance of the grapes coming from the best selections of the Eastern and Western sides of the farm. In fact, the morning light allows the grapes to express the greatest alcoholic strength while the afternoon light intensifies the aromatic sphere of the Sangiovese itself.
The first year of production for this label is the 2011 vintage.
