Red Wine - Sangiovese
Fattoria Cerreto Libri is an 80 hectare farm run biodynamically by Valentina Baldini Libri. Prior to his passing in 2018, her husband Andrea Zanfei helmed the viticulture and winemaking while working full time as a professor. The villa dates back to 1796, and is of considerable importance from an architectural point of view, since the foundations most likely sit on abandoned Etruscan towers that have been reconfigured to build the current shape of the building.
The region of Chianti Ruffina differs from the rest of Chianti because of its unique climate. This is mostly due to the merging of the Sieve river with the larger Arno river, which results in noticeable temperature differences between day and night, as well as a lot of humidity in the early morning and at dusk. Because there are so few producers in Ruffina (around 20), D.O.C regulations are less exposed to the flexibility of
Chianti Classico, and the region has remained more rooted in tradition.
