Production Notes

After a soft pressing, Sangiovese and Syrah undergo separate, temperature-controlled fermentations in stainless steel using selected yeasts - with pumping-over. After 15-18 days both wines are separated from the skins. The Syrah is aged in French oak barrels for 9 months while the Sangiovese is stored in stainless steel before blending.

Producer Information

Azienda Uggiano was established in the early 1970s by oenologist Giuseppe Losapio. He steadily developed the estate, at San Vincenzo a Torri near the river Pesa, to become one of the leading producers in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini zone.

100 hectares of hillside vineyards are owned or leased, in both Colli Fiorentini and around neighbouring Chianti Classico, near San Casciano, from which Uggiano produce consistently well-made Tuscan reds. A core of quality runs through an unfussy, practical and exceptionally well-priced range, from bright entry level Chianti to some impressive, classically styled Riserva wines.

In 2015, the Losapio family sold the company to Uggiano’s young but experienced management team, including commercial manager Giacomo Fossati and Daniele Prosperi, winemaker for the past 12 vintages.
