Born from the desire to give expression to the small hamlet of
one of the most devoted territories in the world to the production of fine wines:
The winery – named Isola delle Falcole recalling the fact that falcons have long nested in the area – has a totally southern exposure, giving sunrays full freedom to enter the vines, which is therefore ideal for ripening a variety like Sangiovese.
The vineyards are located between 400 and 520 metres above sea level and the surrounding hills favour an ideal microclimate for viticulture: that means they are higher than the famous Conca d’Oro ones, but they benefit from the same terroir and exposure.
Isola delle Falcole produces just over 10,000 bottles from its almost four hectares of property. The winery offers three labels, and each one narrates the Chianti terroir with its own personality.
Each label is a vineyard Cru and 2017 was the winery’s very first year of production: Vecchia Vigna IGT Toscana (approx. 6000 bottles) is a blend of Sangiovese (70%), Colorino (10%) and 5% Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Malvasia and Trebbiano, aged 18 months in large casks and 8 months in the bottle. The Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG (approx. 2600 bottles) is a 100% Sangiovese, aged 30 months in large casks and 10 months in the bottle. Finally, the Merlot IGT Toscana (about 1200 bottles) is aged 18 months in French oak barrels and 10 months in the bottle.
Curiosity: the three labels of Isola delle Falcole compose a single painting, when placed one next to the other. “Our aim – they explain – was to create something which could represent the philosophy behind our project”.
