Technical datasheet

Alcohol content: 14% Vol.

Grape varieties: Made exclusively with Sangiovese grapes (100%).

Production technique: The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, with meticulous selection of the healthiest, ripest grapes. Vinification takes place in observance of the Chianti Classico tradition, with prolonged, temperature-controlled maceration of the skins on the must. When fermentation has been completed, the wine obtained undergoes a long period of ageing in Slavonian oak barrels for over 24 months and a further maturing period of at least 5 months in the bottle.

Organoleptic characteristics:
- COLOUR: garnet red;
- BOUQUET: intense but delicate aroma, austere and vinous, completed by a slight note of wood due to long period of time spent in barrels;
- FLAVOUR: elegant and pervasive flavour with decisive tannins and an aftertaste characterised by a slight hint of forest fruits.

Accompaniments: This wine is the excellent accompaniment for roast or stewed game, red meat, mature cheeses and traditional Chianti dishes.

Indications: If possible, pour an hour after opening the bottle, at a temperature of at least 18C.
