Tasting Note:

A charming Chianti full of fruit and spice, juicy and

approachable, with cherries offset by an exotic perfume of

vanilla and cinnamon.

Winemaking:

Grapes were gently crushed, pressed and then macerated

on skins for between 8-10 days.The juice was fermented at

a controlled temperature of 27-28°C with frequent and

gentle pumping over, extracting a good amount of colour

and tannin & giving the wine great structure. After

fermentation, the wine was left to undergo malolactic

fermentation. The wine was then aged in a mixture of

French and American oak barrels for 10 months.

Vineyard :

The production area is located within the hilly zones of Vinci,

Cerreto Guidi and the surrounding areas in Tuscany. The

wine is made from 85% Sangiovese grapes with 10% Merlot

grapes and 5% other varietals included for additional

complexity.

Food matching:

Ideal with roast pheasant with wild mushroom, potato &

bacon ragout or braised veal with red cabbage and

dauphinoise potatoes.

Awards:

Silver Medal at International Wine Challenge 2017,

Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2017.
