This vibrant selection offers floral and fruit fragrances of violet and red berry. The palate delivers juicy red cherry flavor, with white pepper and nutmeg accents alongside bracing tannins that should soften over the next year or two. Perfect to match with barbecues or pastas topped with dense sauces. - Best Buy

Wine maker notes
Produced according to the most traditional Chianti Classico fermentation processes on the skins, in temperature-controlled tanks at a temperature of 28C. Malolactic fermentation takes place naturally in steel tanks. The wine is bottled a year after harvest, after several (5/7) months ageing in medium and large capacity French oak casks from 15 to 50 hectolitres. The moderate use of the wood, the choice of large casks, according to the most classical method, allows the wine to preserve the most natural characteristics of the Sangiovese grape, bringing them into harmony: fruitiness, freshness and the level of tannin.

Food pairing
Ideal for first courses in thick, heavy sauces, with meat stuffing, mushroom risotto, spicy red meats, Tuscan Arista of pig, wild mushroom fricassee, truffled or semi-seasoned hard cheeses.
