The Vinum Estates Chianti D.O.C.G. is a blunt wine representative of the typical Chianti terroir. Estate owner Roberto Dragani is a wine-making innovator, as can be seen by the Chianti D.O.C.G.
Wines produced by The Vinum Estates set themselves apart from the competition as one of the few producers that cultivates its grapes respecting organic regulations with delicate care of the Agronomist.
Chianti winemaking regulations allow a small percentage of native grapes to be added to the Chianti blend. Roberto Dragani has carefully selected grapes cultivated on the estate to add to the blend: the Ambrusco and the Malvasia Nera, with the traditional Ciliegiolo and Cannaiolo and Pugnitello. These grapes transform the Chianti D.O.C.G., from a usually gloomy wine to a more floral and fresh bouquet.
