Castello Della Panaretta
Castello della Paneretta was founded in 1577 and is located in Firenze which is located in the north of Italy. It was often passed on to different owners in the years to follow. The only grape varieties planted and used are Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero. The company owns very old vineyards with medium to high density which survived the controversial years of restructuring of vineyards in Tuscany in the sixties and seventies. Therefore, all genetic material in the winery is strictly from autochthon clones which completely reflect the character of the soils. Currently half of the 22 hectares planted has a density of 5,000 plants/ hectare.
With great passion and determination towards the winemaking business, the current family owners produce a wide range of grapes. Castello Della Paneretta’s primary grape varieties are Sangiovese and Canaiolo Colorino, producing high-end wines under DOCG and IGT statuses.
Some other types of vines include Trebbiano and Malvasia. Berries are picked manually during harvesting and moved to the cellar for processing. The owner follows traditional and innovative methods of wine production, such as fermentation in stainless steel tanks as well as ageing and refining in oak barrels to give the wines a wooden essence. The winery’s wine categories include delicious red, rose, and dessert wines.
