A rich and full style of Chianti with good fruit intensity; dark cherry and ripe redcurrants with elegant tannins and hints of spice. A classic pairing with slow cooked ragu, charcuterie or bean stew.
The wine is 100% Sangiovese, and after the hand-picked grapes have undergone a 20 day fermentation and a further malolactic fermentation the wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.
