About the producer: Brothers Carlo and Daniele Cantalici run this relatively new family winery based in the heart of Chianti. Their main focus is the ubiquitous Sangiovese grape variety, which they vinify in a variety of ways to suit different occasions. Though still in its first generation, this winery has been slowly expanding and gaining accolades for its forward-thinking approach.
