Full-bodied Chianti, produced from organically grown grape material. This is a typical Chianti, with a wild, big and impressively fruity black/wild-berry nose, and loads of fresh, round and sweet tannins.
Important note: this wine absolutely needs some hearty food to go with!
Manual and selective grape harvest, pressing and destalking, 22 days average steeping, both for Sangiovese and for Colorino. Separated processes for date of harvest, variety and vineyard. The wine spontaneously completes the malo-lactic fermentation between the drawing off process and the beginning of Winter. Ageing is performed in French oak barriques during 11 months and only after the wines coming from different vineyards are blended.
Residual sugar: 0.9 g/L (!)
