In the heart of Classic Chiantishire, in the splendid scenery of the hills of San Donato in Poggio, Casa Emma can be found, at an altitude of 420m above sea level, surrounded by 34 hectares of land. The 21 hectares cultivated with vineyards (mainly Sangiovese, about three hectares of Merlot, and small sections of black malmsey and canaiolo), and the three hectares of Olive groves and five hectares of Botanical park completely surround the historical farm house where one finds the wine making and maturation cellar. Then there is a series of areas used in the production process including our wine tasting room. The Bucalossi family bought the company at the beginning of the 1970’s from the Florentine noblewoman Emma Bizzarri, whose name remains attached to the property. Since then, we have been dedicated, with the patience and passion that agriculture demands, to the production of wine (Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Reserve, Soloio and Vin Santo), oil, extra virgin oil, Grappa, vinegar, and a series of delicious gastronomic preparations: wine gelatine, rose syrup and cooked wine.

The nose showed strawberry, rosemary, tanning leather and hints of manure. On the palate, I found a lush, full, structured expression of ripe, dark red fruits with mulling spice. The finish was long, as the ripe fruit slowly tapered off.
