Susanna Soderi together with her mother meticulously run this small estate near Castellina in Chianti. The territory, because of its marly chalk and sandy soil is known within the Chianti region for its elegant, delicate and fragrant Sangiovese. The four hectares of vineyards, planted in 1999 are cultivated at a quasi-organic regime and produce a mere 7200 bottles of wine.

The philosophy of Setriolo is clearly expressed in the 2 images on their label which represent the historic farm and a stylized image of the one olive tree that survived the big frost in 1985 and still stands today, alone amidst the newly planted vineyards: a desire to move forward, while respecting nature and history.

Spurred cordon, 4500 vines per hectare. Yield is 65 quintals per hectare. 20 days skin maceration in cement tanks where the malolactic fermentation is completed. Aged 2 years in French oak barriques, ½ new oak.
