Bottle size and vintage
This wine comes from a selection of grapes from the vineyards that are considered more suitable for aging in large 50hl barrels. Composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino, it is vinified in steel for about 18 days. Aging lasts 12 months in 50 hl Slavonian oak barrels. Finally, it experiences a final period of refinement of three months in the bottle.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
A lovely balanced wine at a reasonable price
This is a fresh but generous Chianti which combines ripe fruit with real finesse: it should remain delicious (especially with pasta!) for at least another 10 years. Good value for money.
