Production area:
Montalcino, in the area allowed for the production of Chianti D.O.C.G. appellation.

Gineprone derives from the presence of a large specimen of “juniper” (a forest essence which is abundant in the woody local area) on the ground near the vineyard.

Sangiovese (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

Fermentation on grape skins for about 10 - 12 days at controlled temperature below 28° C in shallow, wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain delicate tannin and colour extraction.
