Chianti Tenuta Sette Ponti Vigna di Pallino

By | 2nd April 2016

Vigna di Pallino The Chianti Vigna di Pallino takes its name from the grower who, for many years, lovingly looked after this vineyard, already present on cadastral maps dating to the beginning of the 1800’s. From the heart of the estate, produced largely with Sangiovese and without the use of oak, it is a wine that represents the historic continuity of the estate and the traditions of the Italian region.
