Chianti Classico DOCG
AreaChianti Classico, Tuscany.
Grapes95% 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.
ColourAttractive ruby-red color brilliant and enticingly full.
BouquetSatisfyingly 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.
FlavourSomewhat austere in its youth, the wine softens, becoming velvety and developing prolonged and appealing aromatic persistence.
Serving TemperatureServe at 18°-20°C (64°-68°F).
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.
