Denomination: Chianti Classico DOCG
Grape varietals: 100% Sangiovese
Soil: terrain with ample skeleton – Alberese.
Vinification and aging: fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts approximately 15 days at a controlled temperature of 26/28° C. Shortly after malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred into oak barrels where it is aged for 8 months. The bottled wine then remains stored in the cellar for refinement prior to its release.
Tasting notes: intense ruby red in color. A full, fresh, fruity bouquet, with distinct notes of cherries and flowers. A round and soft palate, fused with much flavor, make this an extremely inviting and balanced wine. A long and elegant finish. A true and authentic expression of Sangiovese.
Serving suggestions: traditional accompaniments are red meat (both roasts and salted), game, cheese and typical Mediterranean first courses.
Serving temperature: 18° C – open 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a constant temperature of 17° C away from light.
