The vineyard of Germagnana Farm-house is located in one of the Chianti areas, on the east side of the farm; it is exposed to the sun for all the summer and it consists of about 7.000,00 square meters of land. Chianti is one of the noblest wine in the world and its name comes from the land of Tuscany, in the observance of strict rules for its best quality. Chianti wine has a brilliant ruby colour and a deep odour.
Between may and june the vines begin to bloom and during the second half of june the flower becomes fruit. The grapes begin to colour and here is the ripening, that brings to the grapes all the necessary substances to have wine.
In september month, thanks to the unsettled weather, the ripening process ends and then there is the grape harvest. During the month of october, we pick up the grapes to put them in the cellar where they’ll be cleaned and pressed to obtain the must. Then, the must will remain in the barrels where there will be the alcoolic fermentation for about two weeks. Now the wine is ready to taste.
Germagnana Farm-house wine is a kind of Sangiovese and, as well as all the red Tuscany wines, is good to drink eating grilled red meats, cheeses, and above all eating the white truffle of San Miniato.
It’s better to open the bottle a little bit before drinking the wine, to let the wine oxigenates. This wine is perfect to drink at the temerature of 16/18 degrees centigrade. Anyway, a taste of Germagnana Farm-house wine will be offered to all the guests.
