The territory of Casole, in the Lamole – Greve in Chianti area of the Chianti area, is a large sunny basin that is characterized by an altitude difference that fluctuates between 450 and 650 meters above sea level. The soils are mostly sandy: they are loose soils, which derive from a millennial breakdown of sandstone rocks, which are not very compact and very permeable, poor in terms of organic substances. The strong temperature changes, the southern exposure of the vineyards and the composition of the soil give the wines of I Fabbri and in particular its Sangiovese unique and recognizable organoleptic characteristics.
Among these:
1. a color that is never too heavy;
2. very fine, elegant, crunchy aromas, like those of fresh cherry and raspberry;
3. a generally medium or light body, elegant tannins, a good balance and a marked freshness, which in turn gives a good longevity to the wines.

The philosophy of I Fabbri is to preserve natural resources and enhance the peculiarities of the territory. Typicality and tradition go hand in hand with less and less impacting techniques in the vineyard and in the cellar, with a view to natural wines that are a fascinating and genuine tale of Chianti Classico.

The company is organic, with Q cert certification. Biological conversion has been a natural process, without forcing, with the aim of ensuring ever greater respect for the environment and the consumer. I Fabbri has chosen to adopt sustainable, socially and ecologically sound agriculture.


The vineyards of I Fabbri are located at an altitude between 550 and 650 meters above sea level. Part of the vineyards are rooted in beautiful centuries-old terraces, restored in 2002 and restored to their former glory. Today they represent a magnificent natural amphitheater, in the heart of the Chianti Classico, from which to enjoy a superb view of the oak and conifer woods and the sunset. The exposure of the vines is to the south, south / west: this allows the plants and grapes to enjoy the heat of the sun during the day, the same heat that is also accumulated by the dry walls and gradually released at night, helping the ripening of the berries. The walls, in turn, are a precious testimony of the past and of the agricultural vocation of this land.
Each I Fabbri vineyard is an important chapter in its history. Each vine, each branch, contributes with its character to making the Chianti Classico de I Fabbri and its other Tuscan wines unique in their kind. Vineyards with their own exposure, different parcels of land, plants now more than forty years old or younger vines: after harvesting by hand, the grapes are processed separately, so as to preserve intact the organoleptic characteristics and the distinctive traits. From the highest vineyards are born the Chianti Classico Lamole and the Chianti Classico Olinto, in addition to the pure Merlot Doccio; from the lower ones, however, the wines with greater structure, such as the Chianti Classico Riserva and the Gran Selezione. And no, every vintage is not the same as the previous ones, because wine is a living material: nature, as we know, is never static or identical to itself.


Sustainable agriculture means compliance with sustainability criteria in agricultural production. It is a broader concept of the concept of organic, a working method that starts from the field to get to the cellar, up to the bottling and the packaging choices. Sustainable agriculture is economically advantageous for farmers, respectful of the environment and socially just, so as to contribute to improving the quality of life for farmers and for the whole society. Choosing a type of sustainable agriculture means favoring those natural processes that allow preserving the “environmental resource”, thus avoiding the use of practices that are harmful to the soil and choosing to use renewable energy sources. For years Fabbri has been following the path of sustainability, step by step: our production philosophy is shared by all those who help us in our daily work, in respect of what we believe is our style, where appearance never prevails on the ‘to be. A journey in stages guided by a love for the environment, with the conviction that only by protecting the territory and favoring nature, without ever forcing it, is it possible to obtain natural and quality wines, fleeing homologation and enhancing the peculiarities of the territory. This is why we use renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics, we choose packaging material with little impact and reuse as much as possible the by-products of winemaking. Given the use of indigenous yeasts only, the spontaneity of processing, the goodness of practices in the vineyard (only copper and sulfur and exclusively mechanical weeding), we can speak of natural wines.

YEAR 2003

Introduction of the integrated pest management method; adoption of packaging with recycled cardboard and attention at every stage of the process

YEAR 2007

Reducing the weight of the bottles by about 7,000 kg a year, so as to reduce the CO2 emissions produced during a year by 15,000 kg

YEAR 2008

Energy independence thanks to the construction of the photovoltaic system with 3Kw nominal power, with a CO2 reduction of 2.7 tons

YEAR 2010

Beginning of the conversion process to obtain organic certification. Use of the pomace produced in winemaking for agronomic purposes

YEAR 2013

I Fabbri wines are biological to all effects. Given the use of only indigenous yeasts and the spontaneity of processing, we can speak of natural wines
