The 2006 Chianti Classico is a plump, juicy, modern-styled Chianti. It offers excellent length and a generous personality that will provide much pleasure over the next few years. A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 3% Colorino and 2% Malvasia Nera, it spent 12 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.”,,,

Wine maker notes
Hand harvested grapes undergo separate temperature-controlled fermentation for 15-18 days. The Sangiovese is then aged for 16 months in new French barriques; the Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 18 months in new French barriques.
