Tenuta Cantagallo Chianti Montalbano DOCG

Tenuta Cantagallo has been owned by the Pierazzuoli family since 1970 and covers 200 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods on the rolling Tuscan hills between Florence and Vinci.
The pride of the estate is the production of Chianti Montalbano DOCG and Riserva.
The Chianti Montalbano is entirely produced with Sangiovese grapes, vinified and matured in steel at a controlled temperature.
The selection of the grapes is the first secret of the Chianti Cantagallo, so much that as mentioned in the label and written in the cork is made “a bottle for each strain” (“Una bottiglia di vino per ogni ceppo di vite”).
