The Melini winery in Gaggiano is situated 300 metres above sea level on the Chianti Classico hills along the road from Poggibonsi to Castellina in Chianti. Here, between 1970 and 1974, alongside an original building complex constructed in the 1950s and 1960s, a modern winery with four floors was built into the side of a hill. It was designed for the separate vinification of parcels from single vineyards (the cru concept). All vinification phases, from drying in the loft to aging in barrels and bottling are performed using specific techniques and following the philosophy of quality.
Melini has a longstanding tradition dating back to 1705, the year it was established, which is strongly rooted in the region of Tuscany and focused on developing Chianti.
