When they throw the grapes like that into the basket (rather than carefully placing them), doesn't it damage them?

Alessandro Bindocci

Hi! Thanks for posting and for the question.
There is no damage as the skin of our Sangiovese is quite thick. Furthermore, within a short time from the harvest, the grape bunches will be brought to the winery where they'll undergo the de-steming/crushing process, where there will be a gentle crush before the grape juice is pumped into the tanks.
