Gabriele Buondonno

Casavecchia alla Piazza di Gabriele Buondonno and Valeria Sodano is located in Chianti Classico valley between Florence and Siena, in the town of Castellina in Chianti. It is a little farm of 20 hectares: 8 ha vineyard, 4 ha oliveyard, the rest wood and pasture land.We started in 1989, coming from Naples, after our studies at the Agricultural University.Since the beginning, we cultivated according to Organic Agriculture and we have been “Bio” certified since 1990.Our aim is to preserve, as much as possible, the natural environment and supply the consumers with high quality wines fully maintaining the various flavours stemming from grapes’ variety, soil’s nature and different vintages. According to these objectives we interfere with the grapes and with the wine as little as possible.Our main product is a typical Chianti Classico d.o.c.g., produced with 90 % of Sangiovese grapes, 10 % between Merlot and Canaiolo grapes, aged for 1 year in oak barrels. In the years when the grape quality is very high, with a Sangiovese choice we produce a Chianti Classico Riserva aged for 2 years in oak barrels of 500 lt. From a little vineyard of Syrah we produce “Campo ai Ciliegi”, a rich full-body Syrah of Tuscany i.g.t. aged for 15 -18 months in barriques.
