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.
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.
