Wine

Chianti Classico DOCG

Area

Chianti Classico, Tuscany.

Grapes

95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo.

Vinification and Maturation

After removal of the stalks and delicate crushing, the must is fermented for 12 days in contact with the skins in modern horizontal tanks allowing for greater skin contact and flavour concentration. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures and fines for 12 months, followed by a further fining in the bottle.

Colour

Attractive ruby-red color brilliant and enticingly full.

Bouquet

Satisfyingly intense, fine and elegant, with light scents of violets. As it slowly evolves, the wine naturally develops an appealing bouquet that is full and complex.

Flavour

Somewhat austere in its youth, the wine softens, becoming velvety and developing prolonged and appealing aromatic persistence.

Serving Temperature

Serve at 18°-20°C (64°-68°F).

Food Combinations

Elegant wine, it accompanies savoury main-courses, meat dishes made with rich sauces, grilled red meats and game. It is also perfect with cheeses aged at great length, particularly those with rather piquant flavours.

Alcohol Level

12.5% by volume.
