"Santa Trinita" Chianti Classico DOCG is a dry red wine based on the Sangiovese variety with the addition of a small percentage of Canario Nero. Grapes for wine are grown in the historic zone of Chianti Classico, production is carried out according to a more stringent regulation than the usual Chianti DOCG. Because of the increase in the number of fakes in the 1980s, a consortium of Chianti Classico wines was created in 1987 under the emblem of a black cock. The presence of the coat of arms on the bottle gives an unquestionable guarantee of quality and belonging to the Chianti Classico subregion.
The symbol of the emblem has its own romantic history. In the 13th century, the warring Tuscan provinces of Florence and Siena concluded a bet, which was to resolve the protracted border disputes. When the first rooster screamed at dawn, each city sent its fastest rider to the rival city. Where two riders met, it signified a new provincial border. Florentines starved their black cock to make him sing before a full-time colleague from Siena, so the two riders met only about 10 kilometers north of Siena. The modern Chianti Classico wine region now covers almost the entire land between Siena and Florence.
Wine materials for the drink were made according to the old technology, which has not changed for hundreds of years. The must was prepared from a bit of faded grapes and, after the fermentation, a new wine was added. The result is double fermentation. The modern method involves fermentation and maceration for 12-15 days in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for about a year in a botch and a few more months in bottles. The potential of wine is 5-7 years.
Wines under the label "Chiantijane" are made by several small wineries that have pooled their resources to produce high-quality Tuscan wines. The total area of the company's vineyards is 2460 hectares. The cellars of the winery are located in the provinces of Florence, Siena and Pistoia. Chiantigiane - one of the few companies of Tuscany, which adheres to the old traditions in the production of wines.
