Panzano in Chianti Tuscany
Candialle, one of Tuscany’s up and coming estates, is located 20km south of Florence along the Via Chiantigiana – the famous route that leads through the hills and vineyards of the Chianti Classico DOCG towards Siena. Established by Josephin Cramer and Jarkko Peränen, Candialle's vineyards are nestled below the historic village of Panzano in Chianti in the famous Conca d'Oro, the valley of the ‘Golden Shell’, long considered one of Tuscany’s ‘grand crus’. The vines here benefit from the valley's mesoclimate and natural wide open spaces. The soil composition, high in Galestro (a marl-like soil) with a small amount of Albarese limestone, is a combination of the regions finest.
Josephin and Jarkko take a holistic approach to their ‘agroecosystem’, employing environmentally friendly cultivation methods to strictly control yields, essential factors in ensuring the uniqueness and quality of Candialle.
