Sowing the seed in 2003, Michael Schmelzer, who is American, moved to Italy with his family and purchased 10ha of organic vineyards, in the "belly button of Chianti Classico" at Monte Bernardi. Fermentation is done naturally with maceration in oak casks. Aging for 18-30 months in German and Austrian oak with 12 months in bottle. This a complex reserve style Sangiovese which is elegantly balanced. This wine can be laid down to be enjoyed in the years to come, but can also be enjoyed now.
