FATTORIA DI PETROGNANO
The Fattoria di Petrognano is an estate producer of Chianti and other varietals in the middle of the Lucca hills of Chianti. Sustainable farming, meticulous sorting, traditional winemaking methods and the dedication and skill of the winemaker, assure that each bottle leaving the Petrognano cellars is of the highest quality.
The Chianti ‘Meme’ is the flagship wine of the estate, a wine strongly linked to its territory and it is dedicated to current proprietor Emanuele Peligrini by his grandfather who purchased the estate in 1962 and recently passed away. It can be said that Emanuele marked the turning point in the way of working in the farm. For realizing this wine, composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% ‘Canaiolo’, 5 different selections were made in the owned vineyards, and 5 different plots have been separately vinified. The estate also creates a riserva in great vintages as well as a small amount of Trebbiano.
