Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Intense ruby red in color. Toasty hints of vanilla and chocolate, flavours of violet and cherries on the nose. Velvety texture on the palate with notes of warm spices and red fruit. Great minerality, long lasting ending.

Chianti Classico is especially perfect as a compliment to meat-based main courses, such as porchetta allo spiedo, tripe, bistecca alla fiorentina, Colonnata lard, cold cuts and finocchiona di cinta senese. Chianti Classico also goes well with semi-mature Pecorino Toscano cheese, crostini alla toscana and fagioli al fiasco.

Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
