In the heart of Chianti Classico territory, at an altitude of 420m above sea level, the vineyards of Casa Emma are a classic example of the charm of the Chianti countryside. Together with the most important grape variety of Chianti the “Sangiovese”, which covers about 80% of the property, at Casa Emma we grow other ancient, yet traditional grapes like “Canaiolo” and “Malvasia Nera”, as well as the international “Merlot” exclusively used for the Super Tuscan wine.

Casa Emma Chianti Classico GRAN SELEZIONE DOCG is fermented in oak barrels with 15 to 18 days of maceration over the skins with frequent “pump-overs” to enhance the extraction of flavors and phenolic components. After the malolactic fermentation the wine spends a period of three years in big oak barrel called “botti” (10,000 Litres or 2,650 Gallons). After bottling it spends another year of bottle ageing at the winery to sharpen and harmonize all its components.
