Gioia Cresti is a vivacious, articulate, lovely young winemaker and so are her wines.
 
A small estate directly bordering the Chianti Classico area.
19,5 hectares cultivated with high density (around 6000 plants per hectare) and mainly using a “cordone speronato” training system.
It has its roots in two historical places of the area of Montaperti. We find Carpineta, a site where typical trees characteristic of this area, with silver back leaves, called “Carpini” grow and Fontalpino, the water source with the back drop of the pine trees of Montaperti – two noteworthy places of this important medieval historical site.
