105 acres of vine are planted at altitudes ranging from 1,150 to 1,480 feet a.s.1. in Verrazzano’s limestone-rich soil. Though present in warmer, southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, northern portion of the district. The soil here is extremely lean and stony (43% lime, 29% clay, 28% sand). Fertilization is entirely organic.Grapes are harvested by hand in October and undergo an 8-12 day maceration period. The wine is aged 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels and bottle-aged for four months prior to release.
