Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The grapes are picked by hand and then vinified with great care, using the traditional method of fermentation in the presence of the skins so as to highlight the strong personality conferred by the soils of Radda in Chianti. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in Slavonian oak casks for 12 months.

Winemaker's Notes

COLOUR Ruby-red tending towards garnet. BOUQUET Elegant, with delicate scents of violets. FLAVOUR Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture.

    (From 2007 Vintage) Produced in the heart of the Chianti region at an estate nestled in the Tuscan hills, this wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes. Enjoy the delicious, full-bodied wine with roasts, pasta and cheese.
