About the Winery:

The vineyard “Pecchia” has been in place since the beginning of the 1900s and has always been the best of Gagliole in the memory of the local people. The word Pecchia means bee in ancient Tuscan language - indeed many of these insects can be found in the Pecchia vineyard. From this vineyard, the oldest of the estate, comes the best variety of Sangiovese grapes: medium-sized bunches are grown in order to guarantee the best ratio between skin and juice.

Pecchia is grown in our vineyards in Panzano in Chianti, planted at an elevation of 500 metres on the northwest ridge of the Conca d’Oro. Matured 18 months in French oak barrels and an additional year in the bottle, Pecchia is a single-varietal Sangiovese made only in the finest growing years.                                                                                      Best maturity for drinking: up to 8-10 years after release.
