Winemaker Notes

Podere il Palazzino is in Chianti, 20 km northeast of Siena, in the southern part of Chianti Classico area, with a total of about twenty hectares, a large part of which is dedicated to viticulture and the remainder to olive groves. Given the small dimensions of the estate, working procedures are strictly manual and the soil is cultivated using organic methods. The vineyards are fertilized with compost and manure, but mostly the soil is managed with careful observation of the native weeds and with natural biodiversity. All their wines are fermented with only naturally present yeasts, and the good quality of the grapes at harvest time allows them to use less sulfites.

The Grosso Sanese is 100% Sangiovese, coming from hand picked grapes on vines adjacent to the estate buildings. Fermentation is done in truncated conical oak vats, lasting for around 30 days before being passed into oak barriques for the aging process (around 18 months). After bottling, the Grosso Sanese is rested for a further 6 months.


The Story

Chianti Classico, it's a recognizable name and maybe you have even had a good one, but for us it's an overly large region of 100 square miles with an overly large presence of lackluster wine. Finding a good artisan can really be like sifting through a heaping pile of fiascos to find your Coravin needle.

Enter Edoardo Sderci - young, proud organic farmer working with native grapes to make wines which express the traditions of the zone but in a more lively and energetic way - not wines which should be destined for the morgues. His wines perfectly emulate his energetic and bright soul - and as someone once said…wines are often like dogs - they tend to reflect the personality of their owner (and enter the glaring similarities to the Antinori wines and the construction of their mega modern museum). There is nothing 'constructed' about this Grosso Sanese (which is the term used to describe wines that go to the supermarkets). It's big, fresh and you sense the liveliness in it. It's one of the most authentic Chianti Classico's we've ever tasted.
