Sommelier Wine

as a heartfelt tribute from father Italo to his son Sergio, who had recently joined him in leading the winery. Ser Gioveto not only honors this special bond but also pays homage to the ancient name of Sangiovese – Sangioveto – the primary grape chosen for crafting this exceptional wine. Starting with the 2015 harvest, it proudly carries the prestigious Chianti Classico Riserva appellation and is exclusively crafted from 100% Sangiovese grapes, sourced from the splendid Pian Della Casina vineyard, embodying a legacy of passion and tradition.
