Technical datasheet

Alcohol content: 13% Vol.

Grape varieties: Obtained from Sangiovese (90%), produced with bunches of withered grapes of Colorino Toscano (10%).

Production technique: The hand-harvested grapes are vinified in compliance with an old tradition which has always characterised Chianti wine: "Governo all'uso Toscano", which means Tuscan-style production.This particular technique consists in adding fresh must, obtained from "selected and slightly withered" grapes, to the fermented and freshly racked wine: this reactivates fermentation, which continues slowly until a dry and stable wine is obtained. Subsequently, the wine is stored for ageing in steel tanks and released for sale after maturing in the bottle for at least 3 months.

Organoleptic characteristics:
- COLOUR: bright ruby red with violet hues;
- BOUQUET: excellent fruity aroma, rounded, intensely vinous and agreeable;
- FLAVOUR: harmonious, fresh and sapid flavour with a vinous aftertaste reminiscent of the flavours of the grape harvest.

Accompaniments: This wine can be drunk with all courses of a meal, but its talents are enhanced when it is served with all kinds of dressed pork, cheeses and meat.

Indications: pour at a temperature of at least 18C.
