The first notch up from the standard DOCG Chianti, this Classico offers a slightly fuller, richer wine.
Grape Varieties: Sangiovese
Style: Rich, fruity
Drink By: 2015
Displays lots of fresh red cherry flavours with a hint of spice. The palate has good structure and firm acidity, the tannins are modest and ripe, altogether providing a rounded, well made wine.
Enjoy with Italian cured meats, rich tomato sauce dishes and lighter meat dishes.
Harvested in the second half of September, the wine is kept on its lees (grape skins and dead yeast cells) for four to six months. The wine is bottled between eighteen and twenty months after harvesting and released to market four months later.
In 1927, Alberto Bartali and his wife Leda Pucci founded their estate in the heart of the Chianti zone, on the slopes of the hill on which stands the town of Monteriggioni. Under the management of their son Rivo, the estate took on a more important role in the wine market, extending know-how and commitment to high quality production. The passion and love for the Tuscan land were passed down from Rivo to his children Alberto, Wanda and Maria, and Wanda’s husband Marco, whose joint efforts consolidated and developed the estate. Today, the family tradition continues with their children Filippo, Linda and Andrea.
