Ripanera

Ripanera is a small 40-acre Tuscan estate located in San Casiano, Val di Pesa in the Northwest corner of the Chianti Classico region near Florence. The mature rolling hillside vineyard with its rocky soils and temperate climate consistently produces outstanding fruit for the Chianti Classico. The wines are made under the direction of renowned enologist, Dr. Giacomo Tachis. Dr. Tachis pioneered the Super Tuscan category during his 30 years as enologist for Antinori. Dr. Tachis developed the Tiganello and Solaia programs for Antinori and continues to consult on some of Italy’s best wines including Ripanera.

The aim of Ripanera is quality and not quantity. Careful pruning, strict grape selection and low yielding clones of Sangiovese provide the cellars with outstanding and concentrated raw material. All of their wines are estate grown and estate bottled in a strictly limited production.
