Angela Fronti’s Istine wine are grown from a group of high-altitude small vineyards
around the town of Radda, and one over the border in Gaiole. She’s an exciting young
winemaker and a trained enologist, with a non-interventionist style and a deep understanding of the region.

  • Farming: Organic, certified.

  • Soil / Terroir: Grapes come mostly from their vineyards Istine (Radda in Chianti), Casanova dell’Aia (Radda in Chianti) and Cavarchione (Gaiole in Chianti), but in small part also from their vineyards Tibuca and Le Noci. Average 500 m a.s.l., from soils rich in skeleton with alternating marly limestones (Alberese and
    Galestro) and variable percentages of clay.
  • Vinification: Hand-harvested, 15 to 20 days in concrete and stainless
