Baia D’Ombrone is an agrarian farm that extends its own hectares in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga (Siena) and for a small part in the municipality of Rapolano Terme. The area of almost 1000 hectares is destined for the cultivation of vineyards, olive groves and arable land.
For our company the main activity is the grape production and wine-making. The cultivation of vineyards takes place within two main COOPERATIVES, Chianti and Chianti Classico. All the production comes from plants consisting of n.4115 plants divided into two types: red grapes of Sangiovese type and white grapes of Malvasia and Trebbiano type.
The result is a wine produced with pure Sangiovese grapes, aged in oak barrels and tonneaux.
The Chianti Classico, aging in wood from 2 to 5 years, is followed by a refining in bottle at least 2 months before being put on the market. Chianti wine has the same aging process but with smaller times. The gradations of a Chianti Classico range from 13.5 ° to 14 °, while those of a Chianti range from 13 ° to 13.5 °.
The olive groves, made up of 5,000 plants, are almost entirely made up of so-called “rediscovered” plants, or plants that were first dried up – following the frost in 1985 – and then fell back.
