Chianti and Oak

Giovanni Folonari discusses the beginnings of the family's journey in the fine wine category, and especially in Tuscany. The estates of Cabreo and Nozzole have long been integral parts of their fine wine portfolio. Each property represents a unique take on the wines of Tuscany and the Folonari family's attempt to produce an inclusive portfolio that represents each of Tuscany's great terrors. Brunello, Montepulciano, Chianti, Bolgheri; in each area the family is trying to produce a wine that is distinct and representative of the regional vision.

Giovanni goes into detail discussing the history and style of their Chianti Nozzole and their evolution of style with the swinging pendulum of large and smaller format oak.
