Riserva of the Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. Fattoria la Ripa is produced only using
the best grapes of the vineyards, situated approx. 400m. (above sea level). Only
grapes from La Leccia and La Stalla vineyards are used. The soil is low–fertile,
with a framework of Galestro and Alberese stones, with a pH of approx. 8 and
carbonates in excess of 40%.

density of roughly 4000 plants per hectare. The maximum production per hectare
is 7000 kg. of grapes.
