Cennatoio Description

Cennatoio is a wine estate that Leandro and Gabriella Alessi have managed since 1971. Despite the passage of the years, however, the property has remained the same, “beautiful to see". Cennatoio commands a stupendous view of the Chianti countryside with its hills blanketed by vineyards and olive orchards and dotted by churches, castles and scattered stands of oaks, mighty trees that soar toward the sky high above. The special character of the soil, which is marly, stony and hard to work, and its exposure to the south, which is ideal for varieties like Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Trebbiano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, contribute in decisive fashion to the production of wines that are fine, robust and endowed with a delicate scent of iris.
