Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) A very natural wine making process, the alcoholic fermentation is followed by natural malolactic fermentation in steel casks. A short maturation of the wine before bottling, no wood: the wine maintains and displays all the organoleptic characteristics of the grape, along with a great freshness. It is a young, enjoyable wine which should be drunk in the first two years

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2014 Vintage) This wine is clear, bright and ruby-red in color. The bouquet is reminiscent of ripe plums spiced with pepper and wood nuances. The first sip reveals invigorating flavors of sour cherry, blackberry, and spice followed by a dry vivid finish. This Chianti is bold enough to complement rich and spicy pasta dishes, and is also perfect with tangy chicken or gourmet pizza.
