The Ceppaiano Estate was born in 2005. Initially conceived as an extension of the Poggio al Casone vineyards and location of the new winery, it afterwards becomes an independent estate as a result of subsequent land acquisitions that differ from those of Poggio al Casone for the prevalence of alluvial sands arranged on foothill heights overlooking the coast.
This Chianti Classico has been obtained by a selection of the grapes growing on our 27 hectares Campomaggio vineyard. Ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing. Bouquet, lot of ripe red and black fruits with balsamic overtones. Taste, full-bodied, with a very smooth palate, silky tannins and round finish with a long fruity dominance.
«What is Materia Prima? A life philosophy based on the concept that creativity must be transformed into health and natural food, our raw material (in Italian materia prima), will be the gold of the future. An ambitious project aims to relate the ideas with a new way of living close to nature and sustainable crop production where the expectation and attention become a new dimension of knowledge».
