The winery is located next to the municipality of Castellina (province of Siena) in the Italian region of Tuscany. The property is called "Le Fioraie" (flower seller), which goes back to an old legend. A monk had fainted during his days of walking due to the summer heat and was saved by three girls by infusing him with red wine. A few months later he came back with some other monks and they started to build a church and plant vines. That is why the label contains these three flower girls. The farm was founded in 1954 by the Neri family. Today it is owned by Larissa Karaban, and Michele Neri is responsible as manager and winemaker.
The vineyards cover 12 hectares of vineyards at an altitude of 380 to 420 metres above sea level in the heart of the Chianti-Classico DOCG area. They are mainly planted with Sangiovese, Colorino del Valdarno and Canaiolo Nero, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Through selective manual harvesting in two passages (vineyard and sorting table) only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are processed. After temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks (100 hl), the wines are aged in concrete barrels (250 hl), in tonneaurels (900 l) ) and in French (250 l).
The product range includes DOCG Chianti-Classico and Chianti-Classico Riserva and IGT wines. Premium wines are Chianti Classico Le Fioraie (18 months) and Chianti Classico Riserva Le Fioraie (36 months) made from 90% Sangiovese, Colorino and Canaiolo. Around 34,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The wine is exported to Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Russia and Switzerland, as well as to the USA and Canada.
