DescriptionThe pioneering Mazzei family, owners of Chianti Classico's highly esteemed Castello di Fonterutoli, took the helm at the Belguardo estate in Maremma, Tuscany in the 1990s after recognizing the potential for superb quality winemaking in the local terroir. In the years since, the Mazzei family has established a name for Belguardo among the top producers in this exciting, fast emerging wine region. Belguardo's logo, fashioned after a geometrical symbol sketched by Leonardo da Vinci, represents a union between precision and perspective. It is emblematic of the Mazzeis' commitment to combining exceptional growing conditions with centuries of winemaking expertise to yield concentrated, complex wines that are extraordinarily elegant and aromatic.
VinificationThe grapes were hand harvested on September 6th and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a cold 59˚F to preserve the intense aromatics.
